Description

A woman dressed in the fashion of the 1830s is seen from behind reading from a large book and seemingly reclining on a block of lettering as Notre-Dame Cathedral stands in the background and a skull lies at her feet, adding to the Romantic atmosphere. This poster was commissioned by bookstore owner and publisher Ed. Monnier to advertise a series of books pertaining to Romanticism, the lettering changing accordingly.

The caption reads in the original French: Affiche pour la Librairie Romantique.
