Reouverture du Cabaret du Chat Noir

Ink on paper by Theophile Alexandre Steinlen (1859-1923)

France, 1896


Le Chat Noir was a Parisian cabaret in the arrondissement of Montmartre owned by Rodolphe Salis. The Black Cat was a fitting name for such a locale, conjuring up images of black magic and witches. It was probably influenced by Edgar Allan Poe's short story of the same name, published in 1847.


The poster was advertising the re-opening of the Cabaret du Chat Noir on 3 October 1896 and the Thé�tre du Chat Noir three days later


Custom printed on 280gsm smooth matte fine art paper.

About the artist

Theophile Steinlen

Theophile Alexandre Steinlen was born in Lausanne in 1859 and, after arriving in Paris in 1881, soon became a member of the artistic community in Montmartre of which Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Adolphe Willette were also members. Steinlen and Toulouse-Lautrec depicted several of the same subjects in their work but it was the Swiss artist who enjoyed greater fame during the artists' lifetimes, no doubt due to his ability to undertake more commercial work, such as this poster for Vingeanne milk, which reached a greater audience than Toulouse-Lautrec's controversial graphic work.
