Montmarte: Original india ink drawing depicting Montmartre by Theophile Steinlen, c. 1900; signed middle right.
Swiss born Steinlen (1859-1923) became one of the foremost poster artists in Paris at the turn of the century, along with his contemporary, Toulouse-Lautrec. His original works, mostly observations of his surroundings, are equally prized.
