Jules Cheret (1836-1932) is an important figure in poster history. He pioneered the art of color lithography, and for this is commonly referred to as the, “Father of Poster Design”. It is because of his innovation that poster art became an industry.
Paired with his creativity and artistic flair, Cheret created 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.
This is a unique piece created by Jules Cheret in 1910. It is a composite image of four attractive women, created using pastels on canvas. It is in the hand of the master artist and was created one year before Cheret produced his last poster.
