    Brief Narrative
    Issue of the popular French satiric journal, Le Rire [To Laugh] which was celebrated for its front and back cover full color illustrations. Many artists created drawings for it, including Toulouse-Lautrec, Steinlein, and Cappiello. The journal began as a Belle Epoque publication in 1894 under its founder Felix Julien. It was a time of great political and social unrest and the magazine did its best to make fun of them all. The issues in this collection date from the 1894-1899, the years of L'Affaire Dreyfus, a political scandal revolving around anti-semitism that inflamed France. The magazine is one of the more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic artifacts and visual materials.

    The Katz Ehrenthal Collection is a collection of more than 900 objects depicting Jews and antisemitic and anti-Jewish propaganda from the medieval to the modern era, in Europe, Russia, and the United States. The collection was amassed by Peter Ehrenthal, a Romanian Holocaust survivor, to document the pervasive history of anti-Jewish hatred in Western art, politics and popular culture. It includes crude folk art as well as pieces created by Europe's finest craftsmen, prints and periodical illustrations, posters, paintings, decorative art, and toys and everyday household items decorated with depictions of stereotypical Jewish figures.
