About The Poster: The artist's encyclopedic entry summarizes le Monnier as follows: ''Henri Monnier (1805 - 1877), French cartoonist and writer whose satires of the bourgeoisie became internationally known. [...]
By 1933 (when this poster was produced) he had established himself as an illustrator and in the 1830s began his satirical writings. Monnier, obsessed with the pettiness and mediocrity of middle-class life, created the characters Monsieur and Madame Joseph Prudhomme as ideal representatives of the complacent French bourgeoisie. He used them to attack the pretensions and follies of his era in cartoons, stage comedies, and novels.'' (http://www.britannica.com)
This poster advertises a waterproof shoe wax - evidently good enough for a Musqueteer!
