Biscuits Lefevre-Utile Lulu: Etienne Maurice Firmin Bouisset (September 2, 1859 – 19 March 1925) worked as a lithographer, painter, and printmaker. He specialized in painting children and did a great deal of promotional work for food companies such as Lefevre-Utile, using their initials "LU". 

In this poster, Bouisset employs "The Little Schoolboy" (Petit Ecolier) to advertise Lefevre-Utile's butter crackers. A version of this image is still in use by Lefevre-Utile.
