Pictures and captions from “Le Musée Artistique et Littéraire: Revue Hebdomadaire Ilustrée” edited by J. Rouam, Paris, 1880. I have Tome IV (volume 4) parts I and II, bound together, obtained at one of those market stalls outside the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris.

I have marked the images as being for non-commercial use only, but see individual items for more details. Copyright in France these days is life+70 years, so the artists from this 1880 book would have had to have died in or before the end of 1938, unless they died on military service (getting an extra 30 years of protection!). However, anonymous works, including works published under a pseudonym, and collective works, last 70 years after publication. As a result, unless otherwise indicated, the works here are out of copyright. Note that moral rights are perpetual and inalienable in France, which does not have a “public domain” like the USA. As a result, you must still credit the artist if it is known (and so must I). The wikipedia article on French copyright is a little misleading when it says that items enter the domaine public, because of this.

Note: If you got here from a search engine and don’t see what you were looking for, it might have moved onto a different page within this gallery.
