XIX - XXth century sculptures
STEINLEN Théophile Alexandre (1859-1923)
Born in Lausanne, he moves to Paris in 1878, works as a cartoonist and conceives a famous poster for the Chat Noir. Cats will be his favorite subjets, declined in sculpture, with many differents attitudes. His work is very impressionist and reminds of Bugatti. His bronzes are sometimes cast by Valsuani and Hébrard and some of his works are displayed at the Orsay Museum in Paris.
