Jules Cheret is an important figure in poster history. He was a French painter and lithographer who traveled to England from 1859 to 1866 as a lithography apprentice. There, he learned of the latest lithographic techniques and brought them back to France. Paired with his creativity and artistic flair, Cheret began creating advertisements for cabarets, music halls, and theaters. He used the influence of the Rococo to create vivid advertising, often featuring free-spirited young women that became known as “Cherettes.” These figures have become quintessential Belle Epoque images, and Cheret has been dubbed the 'Father of the Modern Poster'. In this stunning example, we see a Cherette pouring herself a glass of the Get Brother’s peppermint liquor.
