"The young woman flaunts her freedom by joyfully lighting up a cigarette before her company, a cat. Maindron indicates that this image is Meunier's first poster, 'revealing, in colour and design an original and new direction.' The influence of Cheret, however, in whose printing plant Meunier produced a majority of his output, is clearly in evidence. (Rennert, PAI-XXXI, 392)
