Description: Artist: THÉOPHILE-ALEXANDRE STEINLEN (1859-1923) Size: 118 x 92 1/4 in./300 x 234.3 cm Imp. Charles Verneau, Paris "One of Steinlen's finest lithographic achievements was a huge, six-sheet poster for Affiches Charles Verneau. The bustling street scene is alive with an assortment of colorful Montmartre types, prominent among them the artist's daughter, Colette, with a hoop, being carefully led by her mother, Emilie. Note how Steinlen shows the working class side by side with the smartly dressed bourgeois, giving them equal dignity–one of his most endearing traits” (Wine Spectator, 110). Ruth Iskin indicates that while "this was surely an idealized rendition of the poster's mixed audience... Steinlen was celebrating the street as a democratic space" (p.200). L'Estampe et l'Affiche concluded its ecstatic review of this poster by declaring "One can't applaud it enough” (1897, p. 20). Seldom available for sale, this poster is best viewed in person to be truly appreciated. NOTE: This is the one exception to the rule that we never use stock photos: This poster arrived too late to be photographed. Very specific condition report will be provided on request. (great art nouveau)
