L'Amant des Danseuses. Roman Moderniste par Félicien Champsaur. Jules Cheret (French, 1836-1932). PL. 45. Original lithograph from "Les Maitre de L'Affiches" series. Printed by Imprimerie Chaix, Paris, 1896. The coltish dancer appears as if she is either unaware or unconcerned with the fact that she has come under the scrutiny of the shady title character as she gambols about, and even though the piece is alive with requisite Cheret brightness, there is an interesting tension created.
