"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."

Marthe, the story of a woman by J.-K Huysmans( Book )

5 editions published between 1876 and 1879 in French and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new translation by Brendan King is the first for nearly fifty years. Capturing the lively linguistic inventiveness of the original, it also includes an introduction and comprehensive notes." "First published in 1876, Marthe was an important landmark in J.-K. Huysmans's literary career and propelled him into the growing ranks of the Naturalist movement, then beginning to take shape under Zola's direction. Marthe was one of the first French novels to tackle head-on the subject of prostitution, a theme that was to become a central preoccupation in the work of many novelists, painters and poets. Set in and around the demi-monde of the Parisian music hall, it centres on a would-be actress, Marthe, who works in one of the lowest dives in Paris, and tells the story of her brief and ultimately doomed relationship with Leo, a romantic searching for something to take the place of his lost illusions."--BOOK JACKET
