This is one of Cheret's best known creations for JOB cigarette papers. It has been noted that this femme fatale of the belle epoque era shares a resemblance to the chanteuse Yvette Guilbert. "The defiant gesture of an emancipated woman daring to flout conventional manners is caught with perfection; the fact that it happened over a century ago adds to its piquancy. One of Cheret's best and most famous designs." (Rennert, PAI-XXXI, 392)
