L'Exposition 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 on street walls for all to admire including a new generation of innovative young artists. His innovative four color lithograph L'Exposition for the Grand Theatre in Paris was chosen to be published in 1896 in the most important reference work in poster art history, Les Affiches Illustrees, making this work a very affordable and significant entry level investment piece.
