"In one of the finest images in Cheret's Palais de Glace (Ice Palace, Champs Elysees) series, the skater is in a red and yellow striped dress, all wrapped in furs, and her gentleman friend hovers discreetly in the background. This is Cheret at his charming best! " (Rennert PAI-XV, 213)


Palais de Glace des Champs Elysses ca. 1900


"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)
