Description

Tamagno's poster for Absinthe Terminus used the likenesses of two famous stage personalities of the day: Constant Coquelin and Sarah Bernhardt. Bernhardt was furious that her image was used without permission and successfully sued the manufacturers - as a result the posters had to be removed from the walls of Paris.
