Ambassadeurs: La Jolie Fagette
Known as the father of the modern poster, Jules Chéret (1836 – 1932) was a French painter and lithographer. He worked on everything from theater to advertising. The singer Fagette is portrayed in a bright yellow dress and hat while holding sprigs of narcissus against the blue-green background. Both flirtatious and coy, this songbird definitely lives up to her billing.
