More About this Item

Description: Artist: JULES CHÉRET (1836-1932) Size: 33 3/4 x 47 1/4 in./85.7 x 120.2 cm Imp. Chaix, Paris When plans to take down the Eiffel Tower after the end of the 1889 World's Fair fell through, the Flamand restaurant on its first level was converted into the 400-seat Théâtre de la Tour Eiffel by Charles Bodinier. In an attempt to make it a more trendy and artsy venue, the "Paris-Chicago” revue, written by co-owner Alphonse Frank, opened on May 16, 1893, to great success. Here, Chéret depicts the many characters of the show joyously floating through lithographic space.
