Une Minute d’Angoisse [A Moment of Anguish]
Jules Georges Redon was a figural artist known for his humorous portrayals of children and animals. He also produced numerous posters, many of which remain treasured parts of French history. He did a great deal of work for the cabarets and restaurants in his Montmartre neighborhood, including humorous covers for menus.
The text in the upper margin reads “une minute d’angoisse” [“A Moment of Anguish”].
