"A poster for the famous stage actor Mevisto's appearance at the Concert de la Scala. The rural, factory town scene has its quiet players, but 'although no one speaks, it's easy to translate their thoughts' says Andiron, who finds this his best work. A work 'of great size and originality' declares Hiatt"(Rennet, PAI-XXVIII, 357)

 

"A member of the Nabi group of artists, Ibels shared with the others a stylistic debt to Gauguin, but diverged from the esoteric, symbolist interests, preferring to depict directly and honestly the popular life of the streets"(Rennert, PAI-XXVII, 461)
