This BAL BULLIER RED DRESS stone lithography poster advertises the mid-nineteenth century cabaret-ballroom created by Francois Bullier. Located in the 5th Arrondissement, it was popular for dancing and drinking. This art nouveau poster is dated by Jules Cheret as 1887-88 which may (or may not) be interesting; but there are two versions of the poster.
In the version offered here the central figure is wearing a red dress; in the other version she wears a yellow dress.
This poster shows some evidence of restoration along on original fold line (before recent linen backing).
