Taverne Olympia: Cheret captures the gaiety of the Belle Epoque period in this well dressed couple toasting at the Taverne Olympia - a restaurant that featured an all female orchestra and a roller coaster!

Cheret is considered to be the "Father of the Poster", having perfected the printing process used to create these lithographs.
