On this page you can download the hand traced Le Chat Noir (The Black Cat) poster of the famous French Art Nouveau artist Théophile Steinlen.

It was an advertising poster for the famous 19th century cabaret Le Chat Noir depicting a black cat, the symbol after which the cabaret had been initially named. Le Chat Noir Cabaret was located in Montmartre, a bohemian district in Paris. It is considered the first modern cabaret, and it was immensely popular in its time (1881 – 1897). Nowadays the poster design, or simply the black cat design, adds a decorative touch to various products; in some way, it has become the symbol of Paris and its nightlife.
