"Announcing new clothes for Spring, along with the arrival of fresh violets and mimosa from the Riviera, the work is a lively document of the styles and lifestyles of the era. Pean was a pupil of Cheret, working under him at the Chaix printing firm and this piece definitely reflects the master's influence. He specialized in theatre and cabaret posters from around 1890 to 1905. After being among the first to produce posters for the fledgling movie industry, he faded into obscurity" (Rennert, PAI-XXX, 92)
