Fernand le Quesne, “Allegorie de la Publicite” 1897

Le Quesne (1856-1956) has the allegorical Advertising in Place de la Concorde, flogging every imaginable shop and attraction, from the Louvre to the department store Bon March, as well as “Pygmalion” at the theatre.

The competition for the consumer’s attention is fierce, with human billboards waddling about, posters crowding the walls and monuments and European and American newspapers fluttering in the wind. You’d need a drum and bugle to be heard over the rest of the touts — oh, wait, she’s got those too.
