"It has been the good fortune of Vallotton to produce at least one poster which is excellent from every point of view. Nothing more appropriate to the advertisement of a frivolous burlesque than his…'Pepiniere' could well be imagined. It represents a characteristic audience at a theatre convulsed in laughter at what is taking place on the stage. The variety of expression on the faces of the spectators is infinite, and the effect of the whole thing is as mirthful as may be. From the advertiser's point, I can conceive nothing more completely satisfactory" (Hiatt p.123, 124)
