The image of Buffet walking down a snowy street, her hands stuffed into her pockets and eyes burning intensely, is one of the classics of poster art. "This is the earliest of three posters Metivet did for this chanteuse; in all cases, he puts her on ordinary Paris streets in the clothes of a Paris working girl, the persona she projected in her performances" [Laura Gold, First Ladies of the Poster).
