Hereby presenting an excerpt from The Illustrators of Montmartre (1904) by Frank L. Emanuel. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page which is a pen drawing by Théophile Alexandre Steinlen, often referred to only as Steinlen, from Gil Blas Illustré.
“Steinlen is a prolific worker. First in importance among the many publications whose pages he has enriched comes the Gil Blas Illustré. It was Steinlen who initiated the idea of this Paris daily paper issuing a halfpenny supplement on Sundays containing feuilletons and poetry, illustrated with drawings to be reproduced in two or more colours.”
