Pastel: Original pastel of a dancing woman by Jules Cheret, c. 1900, signed lower right. Although Chéret (1836-1932) is credited with being "the father of the advertising poster," he created purely decorative pieces as well. Being freed from the constraints of having to sell a product, he produced imaginative pieces that would adorn the walls of Parisian home for years to come.
Currently custom matted and framed, this piece measures 32" x 24."
