Antique sporting print


Front cover illustration for the French satirical magazine 'Le Rire'. George Meunier was a prolific artist at the turn-of-the-century who was influenced greatly by Cheret, the founder of the advertising poster movement. Meunier succeeded Cheret at the Chaix printing house as principal artist and director. He worked as a poster artist for only a short time, making a career change to a book illustrator, which he pursued until the end of his life. Unrelated text on the reverse. Billiard interest.
