DESCRIPTION:  Despite the delicate red halo behind him, this disreputable cat of Steinlen’s personifies vagabondage; he’s a ragamuffin, a Paris street urchin up to no good, and as such, he represents the deliciously low-class atmosphere of the Chat Noir cabaret with deadly accuracy. No wonder this memorable image was used in a dozen ways over a number of years by the management; they would have been fools not to give it every circulation possible.
