Chocolateby Theophile-Alexandre Steinlen
Compagnie Francaise des Chocolats et Thes
Mother and daughter prepare tea with their observant cat.A charming domestic scene advertises a tea importer. The cat was obviously expecting a dish of milk that would be used in the making of cocoa, the company's other most popular product. The girl is Steinlen's daughter, Colette, and the woman is probably his wife Emilie. More than any other poster artist, Steinlen attracts us by an overpowering charm and sympathetic treatment of his subjects.
