Although his cabaret was going tremendously well, Fursy was thirsty for revenge. His ex-partner, Ropiquet, had found no one of the same caliber as a replacement and was witnessing the collapse of his business. He finally went bankrupt in 1901. The owner of the premises, Lajunie, who had opened the first deluxe restaurant in Montmartre and who had made a fortune, contacted Fursy who wasted no time returning to Pigalle where he merged his two cabarets on June 17, 1901. Again the inevitable Grun is in charge of advertising. In the background he places his two previous posters and a radiant beauty, dressed in pale green with a hat bedecked with yellow flowers in the foreground. At this time his palette is growing richer and wider.
