"She is expensively and discreetly dressed, in the drab colours that were fashionable in the nineties. The subdued, almost washed out tints of dull mauve, snuff brown and tired green had not been seen before in a poster…The face of the woman is troubled, and she is at the same time the worrier and the schemer…It is typical of de Feure's work that the woman is always seen in isolation" (Abdy p.152)
"The Salon of the Hundred, was a small gallery on the premises of the magazine 'La Plume' where promising designers displayed their work. The publication's marketing arm, Editions d'Art, also issued these posters and decorative panels in various editions, often on quality paper as art for the home. The bottom half of these posters, there were 43 in all, is normally filled with text" (Gold p.132)
