"Roedel was a caricaturist, illustrator, watercolorist, and lithographer. He aligned himself in Paris with a group of artists of Montemarte such as Willette, Leandre and Caran d'Ache, supplied drawings for Le Courrier français (see PL. 49) and produced posters, mostly for the local cabarets and theatres. When Willette started the magazine 'La Vache Enragee (the angry cow), Roedel contributed several designs. The name of the publication refers to the artists' life: 'manger de la vache enragee' is a French idiom for 'eking out a miserable existence.' Clearly, this mock-serious design pokes fun at the expense of it's subject. "(Rennert PAI-XXVIII, 504)
