Cats in Art: Lait pur Stérilisé

My continuing series of Sunday posts.

Lithography emerged in the late 19th century as a favorite graphic arts medium for advertising. This poster advertises pure, sterilized milk and features the artwork of Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen, well-known for his illustrations of cats.

Cats will dance for milk.  Just like I will kill for a liter of zero-calorie flavored fizzy water after a long run.
