Title: The Laugh, The Man of Duty

Original vintage cover from Le Rire, a satirical French magazine. Le Rire was founded in the Belle Epoque by Felix Juven and ran from 1894-1971. It was the most successful humorous periodical of its time. This edition's cover shows a cartoon of a metaphorical man of duty weighing what responsibilities he has to complete. Underneath the cartoon is a caption, in which this man of duty decides he would rather celebrate a wedding than do his dirty laundry. A jab at the French government, most likely.

Artist: C. Leandre
