The Théâtre Libre opened its doors at 96 Rue Blanche in Paris on 30 March 1887. Founded by André Antoine, it featured innovative plays. Famous artists such as Édouard Vuillard, Paul Signac and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec designed posters for the performances. Antoine often allowed artists to exhibit their work in the theatre’s rehearsal room. They included Georges Seurat, Paul Signac and Vincent, whose painting Garden with Courting Couples: Square Saint-Pierre was on display there from winter 1887 to spring 1888.
