About

STEINLEN, THEOPHILE ALEXANDRE (1859 -1923) "FemmeNue" (A Nude Woman) Original etching, c. 1900 Signed and numbered in Pencil Provenance: From the atelier of the artist Image Size: 8” x 11 1/2” A major artist of the French Art Nouveau era, Theophile Alexandre Steinlen came to Paris from his native Switzerland at the age of twenty. Mainly self-taught, he quickly established himself as a leading illustrator of popular journals such as Le Rire. He also contributed a large amount of drawings and lithographsto the radical press publications, Pere Peinard, Les Temps Nouveauxand La Chambard. In order to avoid political repercussions for some of his art dealing with strong social content he often employed pseudonyms such as, 'Treelan' and 'Pierre'. In the 1890's Steinlen's wonderful use of line and design led to some of the most famous posters of the Art Nouveau movement. These include, Tournee du Chat Noir(1896), La Rue(1896) and Lait pur Sterilise(1894). Yet the majority of his art continued to explorethe life of the poor and humble. Known as "the Millet of the Streets", Steinlen's influence was vast. Among other artists both Toulouse-Lautrec and the young Picasso paid direct homage to his art. In total, Steinlen created 382 original lithographs and 115 etchings. Like Toulouse-Lautrec, Steinlen contributed some original lithographs to publishers of popular songs who would use them as cover art for their sheet music. Théophile Steinlen died in 1923 in the Cimetière Saint-Vincent in Montmartre. Today,his works can be found at many important museums around the world including at the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., United States.
