"This Cherette (Cheret's model) is out to prove she's more than
just another pretty face and does quite an admirable job of it as
she sits down at the easel, palette in-hand, to put the finishing
touches on the shadow portrait of Adolphe Willette in this advertisement
for an exibition of French artist's work. Cheret cleverly includes
a feline friend cozying up to the model's derriere in a clever nod
to Willette (see posters) who
was a frequent contributor to the satirical publication, Chat-Noir
(the black cat)"
(Rennert, PAI-XXVII, 338)
