Vintage French poster designed for the Alliance Francaise matinee fundraiser to promote French education in Madagascar and other French colonies.

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 venerated art form in itself.
