"Two couples proffer a hearty toast while a respectful waiter hovers nearby, prepared to satisfy their every dining and drinking desire. A vivacious scene to advertise an all-night restaurant" (Rennert, PAI-XXXI, 394)

 

"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)
