I took these photos at the exhibition Cafe and Cabaret at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, featuring posters, prints and paintings by Toulouse-Lautrec and Steinlen.

  2. I miss the MFA - I used to go there often. Love Toulouse-Latrec and all the posters of that era.

  3. The poster is wonderful, the age seen in its art, the lettering, the style. The cat appears to wear a halo, a whimsical take on the exposition. This would be beautiful print, something any visitor to your home would study with delight...
