Greg's suggested set with:

"Like virtually all of the posters Cheret did for the dances at this theatre between 1892 and 1897, the design features a profiled woman in a billowing dress looking out over her shoulder as a …male figure and other revellers dance around her. Cheret would do a single design each winter and it would be repeated with varying text throughout the season… Cheret, reworking the same visual ingredients always keeps us interested" (Rennert, PAI-XXXI, 393)

 

"Extremely vivid colours add to the appeal of this festive Cheret design…Spring has sprung and the feeling of agitated movement coupled with flirtatious possibilities is masterfully conveyed" (Rennert, PAI-XXIX, 294)
