"A lovely young woman with a floral garland announces the Flower Show in Luchon, an attractive and lively town that is still one of the most fashionable resorts in the French Pyrenees, with sulphurous and mildly radioactive springs."
(Rennert, PAI-XXXI, 392)

"The achievement of Cheret was to create a world of explosive happiness, and to paste it on the walls of Paris. As a painter he will be remembered for what Huysmans calls his 'spirit of nervous gaiety', as a lithographer for his superb technique, and as a poster artist for being the ancestor of all modern advertising." (Abdy p.36)
