Description: This print originates from: 'Le Rire.' Le Rire (Laughter) was a successful humor magazine published from October 1894 through the 1950s. Founded in Paris during the Belle Époque by Felix Juven, Le Rire appeared as typical Parisians began to achieve more education, income and leisure time. Interest in the arts, culture and politics intensified during the Gay Nineties. Publications like this helped satisfy such curiosity. The satirical journal was filled with excellent drawings by prominent artists. It was the most successful of all the humoristic magazines.
