Olympia

Olympia

 

From the master, Jules Cheret, Olympia is the poster for the 1893 re-opening of the oldest surviving Parisian music hall. When it first opened in 1889 it was known as “Montagnes Russes” which is French for Roller Coaster. That name was thought to describe the wild time one would have in the hall. This is the 1899 Affiches Illustrees version of Cheret’s original. It is framed.
