"Rhead was one of the first poster artists to gain an international reputation. Born in England he was quite active in London, New York and Paris with equal success: his exhibition of posters in New York in 1895 was America's first, and was well received. He was heavily influenced by Grasset, whom he admired and met while in Paris" (Rennert, PAI-XXVI 513)

Here we see a wonderful example of Art Nouveau design by Rhead, in which another of his striking redheads, set against an almost modernist background, to advertise space in the New York Sun newspaper for which he did several posters.
