In 1850 Gervais Pigier opened a business school in Paris. In 1877 he was the first to launch correspondence courses and opened branches throughout France, offering well-targeted training courses to young girls. Jules-Alexandre Grun (25 May 1868 – 15 February 1934) was a French post-impressionist painter, poster artist, and illustrator.[1] Grun's best known painting is called The Dinner Party, produced in 1911. It was, however, in the fields of poster art and illustration art, for which he was famous. He was employed at a large printing company in Paris and his artistic director was Jules Cheret. Cheret was also his main competitor in poster art. (Wiki) This Poster is published in Grun Posters Book by Israel Perry and Alain Weill , 2005, Page 118
