"Every poster collector should own one poster relating in some way to posters. This is one of the best and most important. Pierrefort was one of many dealers involved in posters in the 1890s (along with Sagot, Arnouls and Kleinmann) and he commissioned posters for his shop from Lobel, De Feure and Thiriet, as well as Ibels. We get a pantomime scene, with harlequin, singer, clowns, all delicately drawn, with priceless expressions" (Rennert, PAI-XIX, 371)
"A member of the Nabi group of artists, Ibels shared with the others a stylistic debt to Gauguin, but diverged from the esoteric, symbolist interests, preferring to depict directly and honestly the popular life of the streets"(Rennert, PAI-XXVII, 461)
