Le Rire was a successful French humour magazine published from October 1894 until its final issue in April 1971. 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. It was a time in which French governance was frequently characterized by corruption and mismanagement. Government ministers and military officials became frequent targets.
The satirical journal was filled with excellent drawings by prominent artists. It featured full-page chromotypographs on both covers and in the centrefold. His illustrations were biting caricatures of the political "jackasses" of the day. Illustrations were contributed by well-known artists such as Hermann-Paul, Leal da Camara, Lucien Metivet, Georges Meunier, Jean-Louis Forain, Adolphe Willette, Cappiello, Albert Guillaume, Grandjouan, Abel Faivre, and Grun.
