Abyssinian Cat by Steinlen

RF005972

New product

Of Swiss origin, French naturalized in 1901, Théophile Alexandre Steinlen settled in Montmartre around 1880 and became familiar with the famous cabaret "Au Chat noir".

A prolific artist, his talents are varied: painter, aquafortist and illustrator in various newspapers such as "Le Gil Blas illustré", Mirliton and Le Chat noir.

A painter with a vigorous drawing, he sometimes became an artist in the suburbs and working-class neighbourhoods of Montmartre. He is also a sculptor. This part of his work is certainly the least known and yet participates in the same universe as his pictorial creations.

The subject of predilection is always the cat in various attitudes and all races. The modeling of his works is less concerned with the anatomical detail of the animal than with capturing one of his attitudes, which are often imbued with fantasy.
