"Forain fut le meilleur successeur de Daumier. Entre 1880 et 1925, ce dessinateur caricaturiste saisira avec un trait vif et un esprit féroce le monde parisien comme la vie sociale et politique française. Il collabora à tous les journaux du temps pour y fustiger bourgeois, parlementaires, juges et avocats, dans des croquis incisifs soulignés d'une légende cruelle. Le crayon aiguisé de Forain pointe les faiblesses, les ridicules, les vices et les misères de l'époque prétendument Belle . Danseuses de l'Opéra ou filles des Boulevards, ouvriers et bohèmes, peintres et domestiques : Forain observe et représente tout un univers en mouvement, que ce soit dans les coulisses ou dans la rue, au sein d'un salon élégant ou d'un café canaille, sur un champ de courses ou dans une antichambre de plaisirs. Ce polémiste de papier est aussi un peintre, un pastelliste et un graveur de haut vol. À travers une centaine de ses plus fameux dessins et un florilège de textes consacrés à sa personne et à son style (par Jacques-Émile Blanche, Alphonse Daudet, Edmond de Goncourt, Joris-Karl Huysmans, ou Henri de Régnier...), ce livre montre la verve et la virtuosité du satiriste et de l'artiste."
