Opening on 18 October, Modern Eden Gallery’s invitational group exhibition ‘Le Chat Noir’ is inspired by La Belle Époque, specifically by Steinlen’s iconic Le Chat Noir poster art.  Through their individual work and unique styles, the participating artists explore the historic influence of the black cat in a unique Parisian way.

“Beginning in roughly 1871, the peace and prosperity in Paris allowed the arts to flourish, and many masterpieces of literature, music, theater, and visual art gained international recognition. The Belle Époque was named, in retrospect, when it began to be considered a “golden age” in contrast to the horrors of World War I. Le Chat Noir (French for “The Black Cat”) was a nineteenth-century entertainment establishment in the bohemian Montmartre district of Paris. Le Chat Noir is thought to be the first modern cabaret but historically best known now by its iconic Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen poster art.” ~ Modern Eden Gallery
