Tournee du Chat Noir
(0000-0360)

by Theophile-Alexandre Steinlen

Despite the delicate red halo behind him, this disreputable cat of Steinlen's personifies vagabondage; he's a ragamuffin, a Paris street urchin up to no good, and as such he represents the deliciously low-class atmosphere of the Chat Noir cabaret with deadly accuracy. No wonder that this memorable image was used in a dozen ways over a number of years by the management; they would have been fools not to give it every circulation possible. The design was no doubt meant as a satirical comment on Mucha's posters, with Steinlen's well-travelled cat's long tail replacing the long tresses in Mucha's images and the halo here having the inscription ""Mont-Joye-Montmartre.""
