Yesterday I had an early Birthday celebration with two wonderful friends.  We had a nice lunch and then went over to the  Museum of the Shenandoah Valley where we saw two amazing exhibits – Steinlen Cats and Tiffany Glass.  Today I’ll share the Cats!  The exhibit features 26 cat themed works by Theophile-Alexandre Steinlen (1859-1923).  The is an artist best know for his Art Nouveau posters.
