Description: Artist: THÉOPHILE-ALEXANDRE STEINLEN (1859-1923) Size: 23 x 31 1/2 in./58.4 x 80.2 cm Imp. Courmont Frères, Paris In one of Steinlen's most tender posters, we are offered an intimate peak into his private life. Using his wife Emilie and his daughter Colette as models, we witness the artist's family at breakfast. As Emilie quietly mediates over the day at hand, she sips on Chinese black tea. Meanwhile, young Colette stares curiously back at the signature household pet, protectively guarding her hot chocolate from a potential feline thief. As charming as it is cozy, this scene promotes the French Chocolate and Tea Company, a staple in all real, rather than overly-fancy, homes. This is the large format version of the image. (chocolate, tea, cat)
