Chocolat Menier. ca. 1895.
Most frequently, Bouisset’s design of this young female graffiti artist shows her scribbling “Chocolat Menier” on the blank slate of a wall she has happened upon (see previous lot). In this lesser-seen, later version, the young girl is writing “Eviter les Contrefaçons” (Avoid Substitutes). Regardless of version, the seductive charm of the composition remains, making it one of the most appealing posters by this artist who frequently used children as his theme.
