studios appeared, each attracting skilled lithographers.
The cinema was born in the Age of the Poster, which was now employed to advertise this new form of cheap entertainment,
aimed generally at the working class. Music hall and theatre posters stayed on display for as long as the performers, or
performances, remained successful, or until the termination of a contracted period.
The novelty of Reynaud’s Optical Theatre caught on and copies and variations appeared including Pipon Féres'
Cinographoscope of 1896, for which the anonymous Projections Animées poster was designed.

metaphor for its anti-war theme.
