Tucked In



Cat on a Balustrade:Summer, 1896 by Theophile A. Steinlen, The Art Institute of Chicago.

Steinlen loved cats and used them as subjects for a great many of his posters. He began as an apprentice in a textile factory and later took up graphic arts and created a great many posters both for consumer goods and political statements.

I haven't been here in a while. Such a treat to view "your gallery". Thank you so much, Martha, for making each day a little more filled with art!

I've never heard of this guy and yet his 'cat' seems so contemporary. Thankyou for bringing his work to my notice. Keep up the great work
