Absinthe Berthelot. ca. 1898.
This passing flirt is causing such havoc for the gentleman at the sidewalk café that he's about to have absinthe in his lap instead of in his glass. Superbly composed and full of astutely observed characters and amusing gestures, this gorgeously colored poster is a nonpareil design by an artist of whom little is known and whose posters are almost never seen. Most of his work, it seems, was for bicycle companies of the period (see no. 57). Rare and truly wonderful!
