About The Poster: A poem about Christmas, penned by Gustave de Lapanouse and illustrated eloquently by Paul Ballauriau, from the French Belle Epoque revue, Gil Blas.

Gil Blas was initially published as a supplement in 1891. It was named for the title character of Alain-René Lesage's eighteenth century novel. Theophile Alexandre Steinlen was the chief illustrator and art director from the publication's debut until he resigned at the end of 1900. The journal continued until 1903. A serialized story was cut abruptly in the middle when Gil Blas closed its doors. 

Sheet is in very good condition, matted and ready to frame.
