Librairie Ed. Sagot by Jules Chéret
This poster by Jules Chéret promotes the librarie, or bookshop, of Edmund Sagot. Dealers like Sagot helped stir up widespread passion for French posters at the turn of the 20th century. It features a young woman who is charming, vivacious, and a little flirtatious. This type was a typical subject of Chéret’s posters--so typical, in fact, that these women became known broadly as chérettes.
This work was featured in the Driehaus Museum’s 2017-2018 exhibition, L'Affichomania: The Passion for French Posters.
