The admission fee from the big ball following the Vachalcade was intended to bail out the organization. Unfortunately, due to the astrocious weather, the ball was a complete flop and the event showed a loss that had to be recovered. The idea of another ball to be held the Moulin Rouge is imagined, with Grun to be commissioned for the poster. Jules-Alexandre Grun (25 May 1868 – 15 February 1934) was a French post-impressionist painter, poster artist, and illustrator.[1] Grun's best known painting is called The Dinner Party, produced in 1911. It was, however, in the fields of poster art and illustration art, for which he was famous. He was employed at a large printing company in Paris and his artistic director was Jules Cheret. Cheret was also his main competitor in poster art. (Wiki) This poster is published in Grun Posters by Israel Perry and Alain Weill 2005 page 26
