Le Passé a la Comédie-Française. ca. 1900.
This early design by Cappiello was a supplement in the satirical magazine Le Rire. As was typical in this stage of Cappiello's career, he uses caricature and strong lines to depict three actors (M. Raphaël Duflos, Mlle Brandes, and M. Henry Mayer) from the play Le Passé, which was performed at the Comédie-Française—the oldest active theatre company in the world. This is a pochoir lithograph.
