“The girl in a frilly print rides sidesaddle on a horse in this poster for a racing event at the famous Hippodrome. An interesting side note to this is Sagot’s remark that this poster was never posted on the hoardings as these particular races were cancelled. The green background is very unusual for Cheret “(Rennert, PAI-XXVII, 344)
“Cheret’s earliest known poster, dated 1858, is for the theatre, and from there he went on to prepare some 500 posters for various theatres, cabarets, music-halls, individual performers and shows of every description. The Folies-Bergere was one of his frequent clients for three decades (60 posters) and so were the Alcazar, the Ambassadeurs, the Moulin Rouge, the Hippodrome and the Musee Grevin. Some of his happiest and most popular designs are in this category. He could exercise his uncanny ability to capture the dynamics of the stage in the movement of dancers, mimes and acrobats” (Rennert, PAI-VII)
