Oh La La J'Enfonce- French Satirical Comic

"Le Rire" or "Laughter" was the name of a successful satirical French publication that ran from October 1894 to April 1971. Founded during the Belle Epoque by French creative director Felix Juven, "Le Rire" found success in a time where people in French society were enjoying higher educations, better income, and most importantly- leisure time. As interest in the arts, culture and politics intensified during the turn of the century, "Le Rire" was the perfect concoction to satisfy such curiosities for the historical price of just 15 cents! Wow. 

This beautifully illustrated cover was designed by Georges Meurrier for the 7th edition of Le Rire, published by Bertin & Cie Paris on August 10, 1901. Signed in plate in the lower right hand corner. 

"Oh No! I'm sinking" shouts the drowning damsel. As a tenured fisherman sprints to her side and says, "You're in luck! I have two floaties with me that will keep you from danger". Whew! That was a close call, he must be our crimson-clad madams sea-side saving grace.
