A black cat works magic to lure patrons in to “Chat Noir,” the nightclub in this poster by Theophile Alexandre Steinlen (1859 – 1923). Originally a textile designer, Steinlen is best known as an illustrator who created posters of cabarets and music hall performers incorporating his signature cats. The Chat Noir, a lively Montmartre cabaret, published a journal illustrated by Steinlen, who created hundreds of images for French magazines.
This is apparently one of the most popular drawings I've ever created, if the rate of shares and pins is any indicator. Too bad most are uncredited... This is my cat Chase; she left us in 2010 at the age of 16. Rest well, lady.
