"Meunier, a beaux Arts-trained painter and decorative artist, also designed 56 known posters that are much in the manner of Cheret, not surpising since he worked at the master's Chaix printing plant, started in 1894. Cheret-like in conception if not in execution, this vertical design for a Swiss cigarmaker's exports to Australia presents "the new woman" full of feminine charm, yet daring to smoke a cigar" (Rennert, PAI-XXII 414, 416)
