"Cacao Lhara," Jules Cheret. 1893

Artist: Jules Cheret (1836 -1932)

Historical Background: This poster by Jules Cheret is for Cacao Lhara / F. Mugnier, printed in 1893. Mugnier’s success bottling a cherry-flavored liqueur called Bigarreau eventually enabled him to expand until he had the largest distillery in the Dijon area. In this two-sheet design, the drink being advertised is a chocolate-flavored one in Mugnier’s prize-winning line, and Cheret offers it to us from the hand of a dark-haired temptress in a Spanish mantilla and shawl.
