    "Cheret's mastery of colour lithography is evident here; he gets every shade of the 'Rainbow' (L'Arc-en-Ciel) for this revue (ballet-pantomime) by using three stones (stone lithography): blue, red and yellow. (Rennert PAI-VIII, 62)
     
    "The Folies Bergere at the edge of Montmarte has existed for about 100 years. About 1900, after a modest start, it became one of the leading revue theatres. It was and still is famous for its splendid decorations and costumes. The program consisted mainly of ballet, pantomime and tableaux vivants. The Folies quickly acquired a legendary reputation particularly among visitors from the puritan, Anglo-Saxon world." (Paris 1900 p.86)
