Mam'zelle Gavroche Comedie-Operette
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. A colorful trifle for an Herve comic operetta featuring the ample crinolined charms of this fetching conductor as she drums up business for her theatrical endeavors. She's facilely captured the attention of all the men in Cheret's graphic universe, and she achieves the same effect on the fleshier folk from our walk of life that can't help but glance her way.
