Today the poster arrived with FedEx. Fantastic quality! I'm very pleased and will come by to your gallery when I'm in NY in January.
Mr. Ross has the one of the finest collections of international vintage posters and prints. He was most helpful working with me to select a genre of work I collect. No trip to Manhattan is complete without stopping into Mr. Ross's Gallery on Madison Avenue to see his latest offerings.

The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters provenance.
I recieved the poster this evening via UPS. It looks fantastic! I'm very pleased with it.
If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.
Mickey - We received the posters today and they are absolutely fantastic. Thanks again.
Really great service from start to finish. Shipping to the UK was not a problem and Mickey and his team gave me all the information I needed. Really happy with the poster too. A great addition to my living room wall. Thanks Again.
It was great meeting with you as well. I had a lot of choices of poster stores to visit while in New York, some less expensive, but I chose to only visit The Ross Art Group due to the level of service that I received initially and the quality of the posters. I really appreciate your communication and follow-up! I will recommend The Ross Art Group to anyone that will be looking for posters....
MAITRES DE L'AFFICHE - PL 2 DIVAN JAPONAIS
11.5” x 15.5”
This image was an integral part of the Maitres de L’Affiche series of posters created for a subscription audience in the late 1890’s. It showcased the most influential posters of the era in a collectible small format.
In this image for the Divan Japonais café concert, Jane Avril “appears to be almost smiling, as if the whole thing were an inside joke. Jane is accompanied -- or, more likely, being accosted -- by noted critic Edouard Dujardin, no doubt with amorous intentions, but her faintly bemused expression indicates that she is used to this, and will be able to handle him without any trouble. Note that the performer -- although it is a great celebrity, the famous Yvette Guilbert -- is not the focus of the poster, and Toulouse-Lautrec makes sure of it not only by placing her somewhat indistinctly in the poorly-lit background, but even by going to the length of deliberately cutting her head off ... Toulouse-Lautrec has made good use of spatter, a technique which adds another dimension to poster art: here, for example, it effectively separates the solid black of Jane’s dress from the less important dark mass of the bar and the orchestra” (Wine Spectator, 42). – per Jack Rennert
