Signes du Samedi - Ode to Meeps


Paris is a very chat noir loving city, which I adore!   This exhibit was at the Musée de Montmartre.

Le château d'eau, moins photographié que la basilique, est malgré tout incontournable dans le paysage Montmartrois.

Love to see this sign, Virginia. It was the sign of the Cabaret "Le Chat Noir" in Monmartre in early 20th century!

If you can spend a minute or two have a look at my post from September 2011 "One of a Kind"..here:

Those magnificent black kitties are everywhere. They're so well loved, and of course, they should be! :) This one looks just like our Otis too..

Yeah but that's so Paris. Originally Toulouse-Lautrec? We can't touch it.

I was curious who painted this famous Chat Noir poster, so I googled it. Théophile Alexandre Steinlen. Monsieur Steinlen would be shocked to find that this bit of ephemera -- a poster-- is still around and increasingly popular long after the artist is gone.

I love it! In a strange way this ties in with my Something Sighted post. The sleeping man was asleep at the Posters of Paris exhibition at the Dallas Museum of Art. This was one of the posters on display. :-)

Is that a little glimpse of Sacre Coeur in the background there Virginia, j'adore the view from up there. Love your title, sweet Meeps!

We went to this museum on our recent trip. Lovely. And we brought one of the posters home successfully in the suitcase and just had it framed, finally, on Saturday. Can't wait to hang it!

I wish this exhibit had been going on while I was there! I'd love it! (Did you take this photo for Meeps?)
