Exhibition Catalogue Collection Weisman & Michel - Fin de siècle & Belle Epoque (Biligual Edition), presented at the musée de Montmartre, Paris (11 october - 31 december 2019).

As such the collection not only presents a substantial body of aesthetically exciting and diverse art but also tells the cultural history of this influential period. While the end of the 19th century is often referred to as the "fin-de-siecle" because of its philosophy of decadence, the first decade of the 20th century is referred to as "The Belle Epoque" because of a sense of optimism and self-confidence. In both periods of time, Montmartre was the center of innovative activity as well as the favored subject of numerous artists.

Théophile Alexandre Steinlen  and Suzanne Valadon were important contributors to Montmartre’s art scene and  as such play major roles in the Weisman/Michel collection with numerous works. Adolphe Willette, Louis Anquetin, and H.G. Ibels, are also emphasized; others, equally important, such as Louis Legrand, Georges Bottini, Maxmime Dethomas, Hermann-Paul, Georges DeFeure, Edouard Saunier, Tomas Julio Leal da Camara, and Albert Guillaume are represented with two or more works, while better-known artists such as Pierre Bonnard, Georges Rouault, , Louis Valtat, Louis Hayet, and Eugène Grasset, each are included with one significant example. In addition, printmaking, poster art, book and journal illustration became major artistic concerns among the young fin-de-siècle generation of Montmatre artists such as Toulouse-Lautrec, T. A. Steinlen, Adolphe Willette, and members of the Nabis such as Pierre Bonnard and Henri Gabriel Ibels.
