On a cold blistery night, a dark destitute figure of a man rings the night bell of an Emergency Night Shelter. Using only blacks, greys and a slight red, Cheret creates a moody design for a Charity to benefit the night shelters. It announces an exhibition of French Art from the period of Louis XIV and Louis XV at the Ecoles des Beaux-Arts. This poster is in stark contrast to the bright dancing beauties we expect from Cheret. Not unlike another deeply moving design of his (see PL. 89).
