"This crackling scamp and his charming blond moll are having a great time outrunning an enraged gendarme on their Gladiators. Whatever the offence they may have committed, the chances of this Gauloise Bonnie and Clyde being caught are very slim."(Rennert, PAI-XXIX, 75)


"Misti is the pseudonym of Ferdinand Mifliez, who worked in the Chaix (Cheret's) printing plant before opening his own studio and creating many more posters, largely for bicycle and automobile firms, from 1894 to 1914." (Phillips III, 398)
