In 1889 the former cabaret of the Grande Pinte was renamed L’Âne Rouge by Gabriel Salis, the brother of the founder of the Chat Noir. Rodolphe had sent for him to give a hand in Paris, but like almost everyone else, he fell out with him, vowing him a violent dislike. It would seem that Willette suggested this name in order to conjure up both Rodolphe Salis’ red hair and ill nature. Gabriel, very skilful and capable, managed the cabaret until 1898, when he sold it to André Joyeux who commissioned this poster by Grün. On a black backdrop a jackass and a very scantily clad young beauty beckon the viewer. The background shows the customary policeman and Salis astride a jackass, escaping with his loot.
