Art Nouveau illustrator, printmaker, and painter Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen is beloved for his stylized renderings of cats and the cancan. Steinlen famously produced posters and illustrations for Le Chat Noir, a Paris club known as the first modern cabaret, in the 1880s and 1890s. Born in 1859, Steinlen studied design for two years in his Swiss hometown at the University of Lausanne. He relocated to Paris’s bohemian Montmartre district in 1881, where he befriended artists like Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Félix Vallotton, and Adolphe Léon Willette. Steinlen gained further recognition through showing at the Salon des Indépendants in the 1890s.

Steinlen often used his wife, child, and family cats as models to create images with a certain intimacy, which differ from fellow illustrator Toulouse-Lautrec's cold, harsh depictions of cabaret life. Steinlen's illustrations have a personal, intimate style that evince a concern for humanitarian issues. Born in Switzerland Steinlen studied philosophy at the University of Lausanne, which engendered an interest in socialist causes. The artist moved to Paris in 1881 and was introduced to the avant-garde literary and artistic world of the Chat Noir cabaret. There he mingled with the illustrator Adolphe Willete, the singer/songwriter Aristide Bruant, and the idiosynchratic Toulouse-Lautrec. The influence of his peers can be clearly seen in the subject matter as well as the style of his artwork.
