"Thomas was an American painter and lithographer, co-owner of the printing firm Thomas & Wyle pf New York. At the age of 63, he submitted this design to a competition sponsored by the Paris newspaper L'Eclair, to the surprise of many, including runners-up Vavasseur, Meunier and Gottlob, he won, and we think deservedly. It was one of the most successful poster competitions ever mounted, 500 entries were submitted, and the jury was a who's who of graphic giants of the day, including Puvis de Chavannes, Cheret, Forain, Grasset, Guillaume, Mucha, Steinlen and Willette" (Rennert, PAI-XVIII, 475)
