Steinlen: Le Chat Noir, Espresso Cup Set

About the Artist

In 1881 Théophile Alexandre Steinlen (1859–1923) settled in Montmartre, the center of the art community in Paris, and began to frequent the literary cabaret known as Le Chat Noir. It was there that Steinlen met and befriended writers such as Paul Verlaine and the artists Jean-Louis Forain, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and Henry Somm, among others. Steinlen was soon contributing illustrations to the associated journal Le Chat Noir, and the success of these set him on the road to becoming one of the foremost illustrators in Paris at the turn of the century. Steinlen depicted all manner of Parisian society in his drawings and illustrations, with a particular emphasis on the life of the working class. He was also active as a designer of theatrical and cabaret posters—an important means of disseminating his work and one that greatly added to his popularity.
