Cocorico magazine

It was in 1898 that the painter Paul Boutigny, admirer and friend of Alphonse Mucha, decided to put on the market the "most artistic and literary humorous journal" which took the "defense of Art Nouveau " in a form “luxurious but at an affordable price”.

Who is the author of The Cocorico Poster?

Of Swiss origin, painter and designer, the artist Alexandre Steinlen , has lived on the Butte Montmartre since 1883 and frequented the Chat Noir cabaret as well as other artists of the time (notably Toulouse Lautrec) - it was during this period that he was asked to do the promotional poster for Cocorico magazine.

Why is the Cocorico poster emblematic?

Steinlen is an amateur of drawings animal (notably the cats that he never stopped drawing) and this poster with an evocative name allows him to reveal all his talent by drawing a black rooster roaring in a morning song... the famous Karicoco” . We also find in this animal the symbol of France. Its association with France dates back to Antiquity, where the Gauls already used the rooster as a symbol.
