Jean Richepin (1849–1926). French poet, dramatist, and novelist Jean Richepin examined the lower levels of society in sharp, bold language. As Émile Zola revolutionized the novel by introducing naturalism in the late 19th century, Richepin did the same for French poetry during that period. (www.student.britannica.com)

"Les Contemporains Celebres, was published by Lefrevre-Utile (famed Biscuit producer) containing portraits...some of Cappiello's finest caricatures of contemporary celebrities" (Rennert, PAI-XXXVI, 584)

"Published by Lefevre-Utile and Octave Beauchamp, Paris, and distributed by G. de Malherbe, containing portraits, biographies, signed testimonials and some of Cappiello's finest caricatures of contemporary celebrities. You might be asking yourself just what do Sarah Bernhardt, Anatole France, Rejane, Granier, Massenet, Bartholdi and the Queen of Madagascar have in common? The answer is quite simple: They all love Lefevre-Utile biscuits, of course" (Rennert, PAI-XL, 252)
