Published to commemorate the Fête de France at Bloomingdale's, a promotional event initiated by Bloomingdale's Stores.
- Bloomingdale's is an American department store chain, created by the two Bloomingadale brothers in 1872, reputed to be a luxury brand with 36 stores throughout the United States.
- As early as September 13, 1983, the French flag flew over Bloomingdale's in the skies over New York City and in the skies over the 14 American cities of the store's other branches. The promotional event was the largest and most comprehensive ever organized by the famous store. It was called "Fête de France". It took place until November and featured a wide range of French products. Following the intervention of the French Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism, Mrs. Edith Cresson, the Fête began with a gala to benefit the Claude Monet Gardens in Giverny.
