Chaix, Paris (not shown) "The customer of Sagot's, one of the principal print and poster dealers in Paris, considers several pieces of artwork. Even though we see only her back, we can tell from the way she leans forward how intensely she's concentrating. Sagot was an early convert to the lure of posters and contributed substantially to the emergence of posters as collectible art in the 1890s (Gold, p. 23). This is the before-letters version of the design.
