This image was an integral part of the Maitres de L'Affiche series of posters created for a subscription audience in the late 1890's. It showcased the most influential posters of the era in a collectible small format. The Le Courier Francais was a prominent newspaper of the era and Jules Cheret worked closely with the publication .

"Cheret's earliest known poster, dated 1858, is for the theatre, and from there he went on to prepare some 500 posters for various theatres, cabarets, music-halls, individual performers and shows of every description. The Folies-Bergere was one of his frequent clients for three decades (60 posters) and so were the Alcazar, the Ambassadeurs, the Moulin Rouge, the Hippodrome and the Musee Grevin. Some of his happiest and most popular designs are in this category. He could exercise his uncanny ability to capture the dynamics of the stage in the movement of dancers, mimes and acrobats" (Rennert, PAI-VIII)
