A middle age couple is ready to go out for the evening?

Jean Louis Forain was born in 1852 and died in 1931. He was a French artist and is noted for his paintings, prints and illustrations.

I have not examined it out of the wrapping. I don't know what magazine it is from but guarantee this is an original magazine illustration from the early 1900's.

Caricature and cartoon, in graphic art, comically distorted drawing or likeness, done with the purpose of satirizing or ridiculing its subject. Cartoons are used today primarily for conveying political commentary and editorial opinion in newspapers and for social comedy and visual wit in magazines.

Sheet size - Height - approx. 9 1/4"
Width - approx. 8 1/8".

J. L. Forain

Condition: This has been trimmed somewhat unevenly from a magazine page but a mat would be able to cover the uneveness. It has some age toning especially along the bottom edge and some light soiling.

The print has been placed against a sheet of white faced posterboard covered with a sheet of plastic wrap that has been scotch taped against the back. The back isn't completely sealed. I have not taken it apart because I think the paper might be brittle and I don't wish to damage it with handling.
