Art History

Throughout their long history, domestic cats have been favorite subjects for artists around the world. Few artists have been more passionately fond of cats than Thophile- Alexandre Steinlen (French, 18591923), a Swiss-born graphic artist who lived in Paris. He drew cats throughout his career with unvarying grace and skill, particularly those from his Montmartre neighborhood. Steinlens models were habitus of rooftops, gutters, cemeteries, and garbage bins, the pets of local artists, seamstresses, and concierges.
