"Grun's Montmartre is always exciting, with enticing women, amorous gentlemen and mainly a lot of light-hearted fun. This poster advertises a revue at the Pepiniere whose title can easily be translated as 'Let's get hot!' All that red, Grun's favourite colour, makes the invitation easy to accept"(Rennert, PAI-XXX, 517)

 

"Grun lived in the bohemian quarter of Paris and frequented its many cafes and bars. Trained in decorative arts, he started to design their interiors and stage decors and soon was also producing posters. His revellers express the very mood of the Parisian tenderloin, light-headed, with fun occupying every thought. The women especially exude an aura of charm with a hint of naughtiness that is Grun's own" (Gold p.104)
