The well-known and lovely poster for an engagement by Guinguette Fleurie – dubbed at the bottom "The Flower of the Singer-Poets" – at the Manège Central, a Montmartre music-hall that was a former riding school. Villon was an important figure in the history of modern art and a quintessential figure in the bohemian scene of Fin-de-Siècle Paris. A Cubist painter, illustrator and filmmaker, he created only six posters – all graced by his superb drawing and observation of character. We fancy that the small figure of a bearded figure in the distant background of this poster is a self-caricature.
