This magical poster is for the Theâtre Pompadour in Paris, which is named for the infamous Madame de Pompadour who became the mistress and lifelong confidante of Louis XV, and was a notable patron of the arts. A likeness of her, mask in hand is used effectively in this moody flowing composition which includes large marionettes hanging from the letter "R" of the heading "Theatre". Overall a soft sensuous handling by the artist Barcet, creates a memorable poster.
