A classic tale of young love is on display in this poster created by Jacques Wely in 1898 for the Operetta, "Les Demoiselles des St. Cyriens". A fashionable young woman disrupts her game of badminton when she notices a young militiaman staring at her beyond the garden wall. We catch them mid-glance, suspended in intrigue. Saint Cyr le E'cole is a suburb of Paris that was home to the training school for officers of the French Army until WWII.

This operetta was shown at the Theatre Cluny in Paris in 1898, and featured music by Louis Varney. Varney was known for his arrangements for the opera, and was actually born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. The artist is Jacques Wely (1873 - 1910), who created some posters but was mainly known for his paintings and drawings of everyday modern Parisian life.

  • 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.

  • 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.
