Cheret's poster for the Casino d'Enghien, for a Charity Ball to benefit the victims of a fire at Fort-de-France. A fanciful design showing a brightly clad child, beckoning us to follow her, as she, her mother, and her friends bound happily along on toy horses against a backdrop of exploding fireworks in the night sky.

 

"The achievement of Cheret was to create a world of explosive happiness, and to paste it on the walls of Paris. As a painter he will be remembered for what Huysmans calls his 'spirit of nervous gaiety', as a lithographer for his superb technique, and as a poster artist for being the ancestor of all modern advertising." (Abdy p.36)
