Nanette Rohan Bearden, a noted dancer and choreographer, was born on Staten Island, New York, on January 20, 1927.Nanette was also a model while pursuing her dance career. She was one of the first African-American fashion models to appear in commercial advertisements for a variety of products.Nanette received training in Modern Dance and Jazz at the Martha Graham School & the Clark Center for Performing Arts.

Posters as an art form were invented by Jules Chéret in Paris in the 1860’s. Their proliferation and refinement were the result of advances in printing technology, a relaxation of laws regulating the press, and a booming demand for the advertisement of ‘modern’ products and of the Parisian lifestyle in the Belle Epoque (1871 – 1914). In journals, books, theater programs, and posters, the graphic arts soon transcended their commercial function and became art objects sought out by art collectors worldwide.
