About The Poster: Music sheet from the popular french belle epoque revue Gil Blas, 1890s.
Gil Blas was initially published as a supplement in 1891. It was named for the title character of Alain-René Lesage's eighteenth century novel. Theophile Alexandre Steinlen was the chief illustrator and art director from the publication's debut until he resigned at the end of 1900. The journal continued until 1903. A serialized story was cut abruptly in the middle when Gil Blas closed its doors.Without question, Steinlen was the main artistic contributor to Gil Blas. He published more covers than any other artist. The journal featured many prominent artists including Hermann-Paul (and Balluriau). (Source : hermann-paul.org)
