Jules CHERET (Chéret)

(1836 – 1932)

Jules Cheret, being influenced by his father who was a typographer, apprehended with ease the techniques of typography creating, consequently, his very first poster in 1858 for the Operette “Orphée aux enfers” by Offenbach.
This initial artistic attempt created a sensation. Hence, in 1896, he opened his own lithography studio in which he invented tri-chromatic printing using only 2 stones. He drew his subjects in a romantic style, using vivid colors (red, blue and yellow) with a brilliant use of the white paper background.
His most celebrated posters show elegant and enticing young women (the Cherettes) who promoted numerous products such as cars, exhibitions, or even shows at the Moulin Rouge and nights out at the “Bal de l’Opéra” and at the “Palais de Glaces”.
Cheret created and printed more than 1000 posters; he was the first professional in poster advertising. As a result, he was coined as the “father of the poster”.
His posters are considered today as masterpieces. They are exhibited in numerous museums, and are highly prized by collectors.
