"In the 1880's poster art was just emerging from the drabness of letterpress announcements showing little but black type. Cheret's airy images were so startlingly bright and fresh on the walls of Paris that they attracted admirers…it is not too far fetched to say that they were instrumental in ushering in the golden age of posters" (Gold p.7)
