About the poster:

This poster advertises the Theâtre Pompadour in Paris, which is named for Madame de Pompadour who became the mistress and lifelong confidante of Louis XV, and was a notable patron of the arts. The poster, designed by Parisian artist E. Barcet, features her likeness holding a mask. Barcet makes great use of black and white in this poster with red accents, creating a beautiful overall composition.

About Les Maitres de L'Affiche:

Maîtres de l'Affiche (Masters of the Poster) refers to 256 color lithographic plates used to create an art publication during the Belle Époque in Paris, France. The collection, reproduced from the original works of ninety-seven artists in a smaller 11 x 15 inch format, was put together by Jules Chéret, the father of poster art. The varied selection of prints were sold in packages of four and delivered monthly to subscribers. On sixteen occasions during the selling period between December 1895 through November 1900, the monthly package included a bonus of a specially created lithograph.

Particulars: Each original Maîtres de l'Affiche lithograph has an embossed stamp in the bottom right corner and was printed on thick paper 
It has been professionally conserved by going through a de-acidification and cleaning bath (see poster and print conservation and restoration)
