Original lithographic poster for Les Fantoches, a puppet-show staged at the theater of the Musee Grevin. Printed by Imprimerie Chaix, ParisJules Cheret (May 31, 1836 - September 23, 1932) was a French painter and lithographer who became a master of poster art. Often called the father of the modern poster. Born in Paris to a poor but creative family of artisans, a lack of finances meant Jules Cheret had a very limited education. At age thirteen, he began a three-year apprenticeship with a lithographer and then his interest in painting led him to take an art course at the ?cole Nationale de Dessin.Like most other fledgling artists, Cheret studied the techniques of various artists, past and present, by visiting Paris museums.
