Naturalized French in 1901, he died in Paris in 1923.

Steinlen began his artistic career as draughtsman in the humorous newspapers.

He exposed to the show of the " independent ones."

Famous for his extraordinary capacity to represent cats with variety of movements and expressions so that the blow of pencil appears as fast as the glance which seizes them, he is also a landscape designer of first command. He also translates with a rare emotion the world of work and misery " He is the friend of all the desherities " wrote Claude Roger-Marx . Steinlen was called " The painter of the poor ".
