Provenance: The Artist's Estate; Private collection
The monogram PP (Petit Pierre) was one of several pseudonyms used by Steinlen. Artists like Steinlen, who usually worked under contracts demanding exclusivity, used pseudonyms to allow themselves to undertake commissions from other (rival) publishers without being able to be directly identified.
