La Plume was a French bi-monthly literary and artistic review. The magazine was set up in 1889 by Léon Deschamps, who edited it for ten years and was succeeded as editor by Karl Boès from 1899 to 1914. Its offices were at number 31 rue Bonaparte, Paris. From its beginning, famous artists such as Willette, Forain, Eugène Grasset, Toulouse-Lautrec, Maurice Denis, Mucha, Gauguin, Pissarro, Félicien Rops, Signac, Seurat, and Redon contributed to it. One of the most renowned issues is that about ‘Le Chat noir’. The magazine supported the symbolist art movement.
