Description:

&quotIn 1895 lithography was the subject of a centennial exhibition, for which d’Alesi did a promotional poster. He chose a familiar theme, that of a smartly dressed lady looking at prints, but he drew more attention than usual to the prints themselves, giving enough detail so that we can identify the styles. The lady is a customer at an outdoor print booth, and one of the prints she is admiring include a large poster by Cheret. He obviously thought it most likely to draw crowds to the exhibition&#8230The slightly sentimental quality of this poster suits the vernacular of this period.&quot (Wolfe 34)
