All eyes are focused on the steaming bowl of Carpentier Chocolat. From the white dog that stretches up to reach it, to the black cat who seems ready to drink. The cat's upright tail is an ingenious part of the floating text which hovers among the wondrous white wisps of steam, that radiate up from the bowl. Even the baby, who pushes away from the weary nursemaid during nursing, reaches out wildly for his preferred nourishment. Henri Gerbault creates a heart-warming memorable design, in keeping with the great master Steinlen's two most famous images (PL.95 and PL. 170).
