This artwork is from Les Maitres de L’Affiche series; miniature versions of outstanding stone lithograph artworks of the most important advertising posters by the finest artists.
“This joyous design, with the allegorical bow-and-arrow toting fairy tickling the face of a satyr, was used in several ways. This version was used to promote circulation, and various editions as artwork for the home”
(Rennert, PAI-XXXI, 392)
“The Courrier Francais series: This lively 12-page weekly magazine started in 1894 followed the activities of the poster world very closely. A black and white journal, measuring 11 3/8 x 16 inches, it championed the work of many poster artists; Willette, Forain, Rassenfosse and, most of all Cheret. Almost every week about 35 Cheret posters were listed for sale. Often a new Cheret poster would be announced with a full-page reproduction. The full-colour supplements by Cheret were inserted inside subscribers’ copies of the Courrier Francais were folded into it (Rennert, PAI-XXIII, 200)
