A. & F. Pears soap company pioneered the use of "fine art" reproductions in advertising their product, thus equating it in the public mind with the finer things of life. The most famous example of this is their chromolithographic reproduction of Sir John Everett Millais' "Bubbles." The Pears Annual was published from 1891 to the 1920s accompanied by 2 or more of these beautifully printed chromolithographic reproductions of popular paintings of the day.
