This lithograph, with its fluid lines and splattered ink, is reminiscent of prints by Hermann-Paul's contemporary and fellow cabaret denizen Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Unlike Lautrec's prints, however, Hermann-Paul's lithographs are not well known, perhaps owing to their rarity. While a catalogue of the artist's prints has not been produced, only three impressions of The Barrison Sisters are believed to exist.
Inscribed, l.l.: 2" and stamped with Sagot's blindstamp (Lugt 2254)
