| Cheret's Oil
Whereas Cheret’s enormous
success as a poster artist granted him recognition and fame, he also created
magical, winsome and ethereal oil paintings and pastels. They always included
women, often times a carnival scene, a pierrot figure, picnic scenes,
dancers appearing to float in the air, tambourine players dressed in Cheret‘s
array of colors, actresses with flower decorated bonnets and flowing dresses.
Cheret gave life and animation to all his subjects.
