Most people do not know this, but Chat Noir was a 19th century cabaret house in Paris, ever so popular with locals and artists. Theophile Steinlen's 1896 advertisement for a tour of the cabaret entertainers from Chat Noir is shown here in this charming tapestry. The Chat Noir first opened in November 1881 at Boulevard Rochechouart by Rodolphe Salis and was closed after his death in 1897. Picasso was among one of the artists who wanted to visit, but found the cabaret closed, when he came to see the Paris Exposition of 1900. Steinlein's poster art of the cabaret is a well known and well loved iconic design, and features a black cat, in rustic yellows and reds. As said by Salis, "The Chat Noir is the most extraordinary cabaret in the world. You rub shoulders with the most famous men of Paris, meeting there with foreigners from every corner of the world." This animal art tapestry is lined and comes with a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod, where pictured, is not included in the price.
