Historical Note

By the 19th century, caricature in France had become a highly evolved form of public discourse about famous figures (politicans, artists and writers, etc.) and the events of the day. During the 19th and early 20th centuries, French periodicals such as La vie parisienne, Le journal amusant, Le petit journal pour rire and Le charivari became well-known for the caricatures they published. Caricaturists (many of whom published under pseudonyms) themselves became public figures.
