A fine print by the noted artist THEOPHILE STEINLEN (1859-1923), titled "La Rafle" (The Roundup----of prostitutes!), color lithograph, pencil signed in olive-green at lower right, numbered in same pencil 99 lower left, with the blind stamp lower left of Ed. Kleinmann, Paris. The work measures 13 1/8" by 10 1/8" inside the mat (not examined out of frame, appears clean). Steinlen of course was the major Swiss artist known for his drawings and prints (and, notably, posters) during the late years of the 19th century and early years of the twentieth. Well integrated into the cultural circles in Paris, he was a popular illustrator. His images of cats are almost immediately recognizable, but he also captured the humans going about their urban lives. This example is nicely framed in gold with closed corners, by the noted Los Angeles framers Jerry Solomon Enterprises. There is slight wear to the frame, easily touched up.
