Le Monde IllustrĂ©
This journal appeared on a weekly basis. Founded in 1856 it was sold also in 2 large annual volumes. Between 1862 and 1869 Daumier contributed 37 wood engravings to this journal; not in full size pages but still in rather large measurements. In the various years the following number of Daumier prints was published: 16 in 1862, 5 in 1863, 2 in 1864, 7 in 1867, 5 in 1868, 1 in 1869. The last one appeared in 1878. It is the beautiful â€śFauteuils dâ€™Orchestreâ€ť (DR 6071), a print executed by the engraver LepĂ¨re after a water colour by Daumier. It was shown at the great Daumier Exhibition at Galerie Durand-Ruel of 1878, arranged shortly before Daumierâ€™s death.
According to Bouvy, five of those prints which had originally appeared in the â€ťLe Monde IllustrĂ©â€ť were re-printed in 1865 in â€śLe Journal IllustrĂ©â€ť, a weekly paper in-folio, founded in 1864. Further 20 prints were published in the weekly â€śLa Presse IllustrĂ©eâ€ť, founded in 1860.
