Steinlen the portraitist

Suzanne Valadon is not the only artist sketched by Steinlen to be found in the collections of the Musée de Vernon. Thanks to Yvan Lamberty, a wise collector, the museum can display the faces of Anatole France, Jehan Rictus, and Gustave Charpentier - the writer, poet, and composer respectively. They bear witness to the particular manner in which Steinlen portrayed various characters from the artistic circles of Montmartre at the time.
