Description

Theophile Alexandre Steinlen was well known for his art posters. However, he also painted and created prints. This painting was a favorite of Ted Coe, not just for the beauty of the painting itself, but Ted loved animals: “I still enjoy the tigerous touch of the background foliage and the cats fur coat. The eyes are also full of feminine feistiness.”
