"The light opera by Ganne bearing the same title [as the well-known magazine] is justly forgotten and the poster by Grun extremely rare. Louis Ganne (1862-1923) who was a conductor at the Cabaret des Incoherents (where Gruen designed a bit of the scenery) had a full career as a conductor and composer of unremarkable light operas. If he remains known today it is as the composer of the Marche Loraine-one of the jewels of our military repertory-which bring us to this light opera undoubtedly belonging to the same sphere. The black background as well as the red color dressing the rooster are de rigueur. Obviously, Gruen doesn't like to switch palettes and always seems to be radically allergic to the color blue. A few Napoleonic souvenirs and some roses on a feedbox put finishing touches to the picture. The 'Cocorico', itself, is all done in yellow" (Gruen, p. 88). Jules-Alexandre Grun (25 May 1868 – 15 February 1934) was a French post-impressionist painter, poster artist, and illustrator.[1] Grun's best known painting is called The Dinner Party, produced in 1911. It was, however, in the fields of poster art and illustration art, for which he was famous. He was employed at a large printing company in Paris and his artistic director was Jules Cheret. Cheret was also his main competitor in poster art. (Wiki) This poster is published in Grun Posters by Israel Perry and Alain Weill 2005 page 88

  • 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.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.
