DESCRIPTION:  "One of Steinlen's finest lithographic achievements was a huge, six-sheet oster for Affiches Charles Verneau. The bustling street scene is alive with an assortment of colorful Montmartre types, prominent among them the artist's daughter, Colette, with a hoop, being carefully led by her mother, Emilie. Note how Steinlen shows the working class side by side with the smartly dressed bourgeois, giving them equal dignity - one of his most endearing traits" (Wine Spectator, 110). L'Estampe et l'Affiche concluded its ecstatic review of this poster by declaring "One can't applaud it enough" (1897, p.20).

Condition:
The colors are in exceptionally fine, original condition, with minor restoration at the seams. It is extremely rare to find this poster in as fine a condition as this.
