Quiquina Dubonnet by Jules Cheret
Jules Cheret' innovative use of the chromolithograph transformed the city scape in the late 19th century making him the father of the color lithographic poster. His innovative posters were a regular feature in Le Courrier Francais published as black and white lithographs, with frequent inserts of full color versions that were very popular. This image advertising the sweet, aromatic fortified wine Dubonnet is representative of Cheret's innovative and provocative style that resonated with the populace.
