La Critique. Misti. Lithograph. Plate No.215. Maitres de L'Affiche (1900).

Misti is the pseudonym of Ferdinand Misti-Mifliez, who worked in the Chaix (Cheret’s) printing plant before opening his own studio and creating many more posters, largely for bicycle and automobile firms, from 1894 to 1914. His elegant and efficient style, which features beautiful stylish women as often as possible, is a standard of the fin-de-siecle renditioning.
