"At first glance, the sheer elan of the design makes us assume it is one of Cheret's inspired revelries. Indeed, Meunier was an admirer and disciple of the master, and most of his poster work was done at the printing plant where Cheret reigned supreme. Perhaps a trifle less airy than some of Cheret's nymphs, and with her feet firmly planted on the ground, this cavorting joy-seeker takes second place to know one when it comes to having herself a ball"(Gold p.100)

 

"Meunier, a beaux Arts-trained painter and decorative artist, also designed 56 known posters that are much in the manner of Cheret, not surprising since he worked at the master's Chaix printing plant, started in 1894" (Rennert, PAI-XXII 414)
