"Perhaps to show this lamp can be handled even by a child, Cheret allows a little towheaded tike to run around with it, while another one carries a canister of kerosene, cheerfully disregarding basic safety precautions. But we forgive him because the kids are so darn cute, especially the one in the red polka-dot dress" (Rennert, PAI-XXXI, 392)
"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)
