Theophile-Alexandre Steinlen, 1894
This beautiful modern postcard features a reproduction of a 1894 Théophile Alexandre Steinlen poster. The poster is for Lait pur Sterilise.
"The humble dairy of Quillot Brothers in the village of Montigny sur Vingeanne could not have had the slightest notion that, to advertise their sterilized milk, they caused Steinlen to produce one of the all-time most endearing poster images ever created"
The image shows a pretty young girl sipping from a bowl of milk while three cats look on.
Théophile Alexandre Steinlen, frequently referred to as just Steinlen (November 10, 1859 - December 13, 1923), was a Swiss-born French Art Nouveau painter and printmaker.
