"A triumphs of colour and printing. Being freed in them from having to sell a product, Cheret let his imagination soar and his light-footed nymphs are the first clear examples of what was to adorn the walls of Paris for the next decade; the unabashedly hedonistic, carefree spirits that became known as 'Cherettes' “.

A lithograph entitled "Parisian Fantasy" and printed in color as a supplement for "Paris Illustré", a large format magazine founded in 1883 by Rene Baschet (1860-1945) son of the publisher Ludovic Baschet. This was the first monthly magazine printed with color pages. From 1884 to 1888, artists such as Eugène Grasset presented illustrations for more than 25 full interior pages or covers.
