Period Paper is thrilled to offer an exciting collection of beautiful sepia halftone prints which capture the essence of France's Belle Epoque. From the late 19th century to the beginning of World War I, such artistic figures as Paul Morand, Auguste Rodin, Colette, Jules Romains, Sarah Bernhardt and many more sprang out of the woodwork to claim their rightful places in the theaters and cafés of Paris. They were the innovators who began literary movements, created new forms of dance, and set the stage for generations to come.

This piece was illustrated by Camara, Thomas. Artist name printed on page - bottom center of image.

Leal da Câmara, Thomás

Thomás Câmara (1876-1948) was a controversial Portuguese caricaturist and painter who was heavily involved in politics, and loved to criticize large institutions such as the monarchy and the church in his work. That sort of behavior did eventually catch up to him, and around the turn of the century he was exiled and came to live in Paris. He did a lot of notable work for L'Assiette de Beurre, and was soon recognized throughout Europe for his work.
