"Meunier, a beaux Arts-trained painter and decorative artist, also designed
56 known posters that are much in the manner of Cheret, not surpising since he
worked at the master,s Chaix printing plant, started in 1894.
Cheret-like in conception if not in execution, this vertical design
for a Swiss cigarmaker's exports to Australia presents "the new
woman" full of feminine charm, yet daring to smoke a cigar"
