The dancer is boundless joy personified, and the red spotlight on her adds to the impact of this vivacious work. This version is from the series Chéret contributed to the Courrier Français, a lively twelve-page weekly magazine, started in 1894, which championed the work of many leading posterists. But this isn’t the design’s first appearance in that newspaper; that version hails from some six-and-a-half months prior.
