Biographical/historical: Le Charivari, an illustrated newspaper, was published in Paris from 1833 to 1937. Though its original aim was political commentary, it turned to more generalized satire after an official ban on political caricature. The illustrators Cham (the pseudonym of Charles Amédée de Noé) and Charles Vernier were frequent contributors.
Biographical/historical: La Périchole was a comedy with songs, written by Emmanuel Théaulon and Alfred de Forges, and first presented at the Théâtre du Palais-Royal, Paris, in 1835.
