Why We Love This

An original lithograph poster printed in colors on wove poster paper. Signed and dated on the stone at the center right edge Cheret/1900. This is a proof impression printed prior to any poster text being added to the stone. Printed at Imprimerie Chaix (Ateliers Chéret). Catalogue reference: Malhotra 267, Broido Pl. 24. Jules Chéret created this poster to advertise a production at the Grévin Museum. This venue is a Paris original: a waxworks founded around 1880 by caricaturist Alfred Grévin, it included a 500 seat auditorium where live performances were given to supplement the meager income Grévin was making from admissions to the museum part of the operation. The theater had mirrored walls, and Chéret painted the ceiling. The presentations included a mix of magic shows, revues and concerts - anything to bring the patrons. What is perhaps most amazing is that the Musée Grévin is still in business today. Chéret created this poster to advertise a production at the Grévin Museum.
