Exhibit Details

Steinlen: Cats and Steinlen: Humanity features works by turn-of-the-century Parisian printmaker and illustrator, Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen. The William King Museum of Art brings together exhibitions developed by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and University of Richmond Museums, offering an exploration of two aspects of the artist’s multi-faceted career. Viewing these exhibitions in tandem provides the opportunity to observe Steinlen’s various stylistic explorations of cats, a favorite subject matter of his, while also considering his humanitarian interests and developing political artistic voice.
