Alphonse Allais Caricatured (3)

April 9th, 2013 · 2 Comments

Georges Lorin made this sketch of Allais sometime in the ’90s.


Jean Veber added to his gallery of Allais caricatures, with a portrait of Allais in the costume he proposed for the members of the Académie Française.


Jean Villemot drew this curious portrait for the cover of Le Sourire.


An anonymous silhouette, from a country fair.


And, just to get my two cents in, my drawing of Allais, Captain Cap, and a potato, from Captain Cap, Volume 2.

    Another nice set! I’d love to see the original cover Le Sourire. That’s indeed an odd one. The train of the dress in front of her??

    Odd indeed! Is it supposed to be his wedding?
