A vintage French poster advertising a performance by French cabaret singer Yvette Guilbert at the Champs Elysees music hall L'Horloge.

It was in the 1890s that the poster started being more widely recognized as form of artistic expression. The poster became an integral part of the cityscape during the Belle Epoque, turn of the century period in Europe—its colorful, larger than life images both indispensible to advertising and a respected art form in itself.
