Maîtres de l'Affiche (Masters of the Poster) refers to 256 color lithographic plates used to create an art publication during the Belle Époque in Paris, France. The collection, reproduced from the original works of ninety-seven artists in a smaller 11 x 15 inch format, was put together by Jules Chéret, the father of poster art and distributed between 1895 and 1900. The varied selection of prints were sold in packages of four and delivered monthly to subscribers. Designed for a subscription audience it showcased the most influential posters of the era in a collectible small format.

In this image, Adolph L. Willette (1857 – 1926) depicts a Dutch woman in traditional garb holding a try of Van Houten hot chocolate. Willette created the full-sized version of this vintage poster in 1893. Willette was a painter who successfully switched to illustration, caricatures and lithography in the 1880s. He was most well-known for his satirical illustrations in the humor magazines of his day.
