"A group of (Montmartre) artists, including Somm, Raffelli and de Feure,
decided to make a sale of their work at the Hôtel Drouot, the famous Paris
auction house. To announce it, Roedel designed a poster showing an artist's model
walking down a steep hill to Paris, carrying two canvases under her arm
model is charmingly dressed, in an outfit very like the skating girl of Cheret's
poster. In the background are the windmills of the Moulin de la Galette, which
dominated the landscape of Montmarte until eclipsed by the dome of Sacre Coeur.
The Hotel Drouot refused the poster, but it was seen by the manager of the Moulin
de la Galette, who commissioned the version shown here"(Rennert,
