"L'Assiette Au Beurre"



L'Assiette au Beurre, a satirical journal, was published in France from March 1901 to October 1912. The journal was composed almost entirely of drawings with captions (approximately 16 per issue) and contained more than 10,000 images in black and white and color. Many artists contributed to this review, including Félix Vallotton, Kees Van Dongen, Jacques Villon, Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen, Bernard Naudin, Caran d'Ache, Leonetto Cappiello, Leandre, and H.G. Ibels.

Common themes in L'Assiette au Beurre were anti-clerical, antimilitarist, anti-capitalist, anti-civil servant…essentially, anti-everything. L’Assiette au Beurre had a definite anarchistic reputation. Remarkable not only because of the ideas that it expressed, but especially because of the quality of its illustrations, L’Assiette au Beurre was an extraordinary laboratory of graphics, colors, and social commentary.

This set is presented in three volumes. Volume One contains Issues No. 201 (February 1905) – No. 250 (January 1906). Volume Two contains Issues No. 251 (January 1906) – No. 300 (December 1906). Volume Three contains Issues No. 351 (December 1907) – No. 400 (November 1908).
