Among Chéret's largest advertising accounts were Paris's larger department stores, including Les Buttes Chaumont and La Place Clichy. Here, Chéret employs an elongated format and creates, in his style that is often compared to Tiepolo, a cascade of children and toys. Sagot referred to this poster as "one of [Chéret's] masterpieces." Cheret 843, Reims 378, Broido 673, DFP-II 203, Maindron 560.
