"Meunier makes it clear that this famous cafe-concert is as good a place for a cafe as for a concert, for drinks and merry gossip as for whatever's on display on the distant stage. The natural, liberated self-assurance of these Parisiennes of a century ago still comes through with astonishing immediacy…Arguably the best work of Meunier" (Rennert, PAI-XXXI, 392)

 

"Meunier, a beaux Arts-trained painter and decorative artist, also designed 56 known posters that are much in the manner of Cheret, not surprising since he worked at the master's Chaix printing plant, started in 1894" (Rennert, PAI-XXII 414)
