Le Rire : journal humoristique paraissant le samedi, v. XXIV, No. 254, 5th annee, September 16, 1899

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.234.13

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.
