Vive les Satiristes!

French Caricature during the Reign of Louis Philipp, 1830–1848

A fascinating overview of the Golden Age of social and political satire in nineteenth-century France, Vive Les Satiristes! focuses on controversial and wildly popular journals like La Caricature and Le Charivari, and such great illustrators as Daumier and Grandville, who captured in their pages the foibles of those around them with unmatched humor, skill, and style.
Published in conjunction with a Grolier Club exhibition, and beautifully illustrated, it includes a collector’s statement, an introduction, and an essay by Josephine Lea Iselin.
