In the 1890's Steinlen's wonderful use of line and design led to some of the most famous posters of the Art Nouveau movement. These include, Tournee du Chat Noir (1896), La Rue (1896) and Lait pur Sterilise (1894).

In total, Steinlen created 382 original lithographs and 115 etchings. Le Depute aux Champs was published by Kleinmann in Paris in a limited edition of 100 impressions.
