"A children's attraction at the 1889 World's Fair in Paris, 'The Land of the Fairies,' could serve virtually as a theme for much of Cheret's work, It's these happy, soaring fairies that remain his most memorable legacy. A delicate explosion of yellows, reds and blues. (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)
