Swiss artist Theophile Alexandre Steinlen (1859 – 1923) created warm, intimate posters of cabarets and music hall performers. Initially printing textiles, Steinlen moved to Paris’ Bohemian Montmartre section, where his Art Nouveau style blossomed in the avant-garde atmosphere. While living there he created numerous ads as well as hundreds of magazine illustrations and distinctive nightclub posters featuring his trademark cats. In addition to the posters, he is also known for his depictions of everyday working class Parisian scenes which display a deep sensitivity for his subjects.
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (192 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.
