"This is the before-lettering version of Chéret’s charming poster for "Les Fantoches," a puppet-show extravaganza staged at the theater of the Musée Grevin, a frequent client of Chéret. The poster shines with Chéret’s fine sense of composition and his great lithographic skill." (Rennert)

The Musee Grevin ca. 1900 with two Cheret posters on the facade.

"The Grévin Museum was one of the many small establishments of the late 19th century which discovered that its permanent exhibits didn’t attract enough paying customers; hence, they created events to bring in bigger crowds. The Grévin specialized in recreations of recent news events, slide shows, pantomimes, magic shows, and concerts, many of which had promotional posters designed by Chéret.
