Atché's poster "was an immediate success and there was such a demand from collectors that they did a second print, in smaller size without the lettering" (Atché p. XXX). For this later poster Atché clearly made a new drawing based on her original, in which she improves the details of the woman's gown and designs a charming new curve for the smoke. This is the smaller version, before text. Art Nouveau p. 122 (var), Maitres 1900 p. 26, DFP-II 24, Wine Spectator 101 (var), Abdy p. 149 (var).
