"The German born illustrator Bac did few posters, but his series of three, in almost identical format, for Yvette Guilbert are his best. Maindron called them 'Strong and original designs'(Maindron p.36) Bac was a life-long, intimate friend of Yvettte. She wrote an introduction to his album 'Femmes de Theatres' He was one of the few invited guests to her private wedding to Max Schiller in 1897. Yvette is seen here in a full length portrait in profile against a night scene" (Rennert, PAI-VIII, 232)
