A superbly talented draftsman, Doré began working for the publisher Charles Philipon in 1848, when he was just sixteen years old. He created lithographs for many of Philipon’s periodicals including the "Journal pour rire" and the "Musée français-anglais", in which this lithograph appeared. Beneath the image, the printer is identified at left.

Pictorial works produced by transferring images by means of a matrix such as a plate, block, or screen, using any of various printing processes. When emphasizing the individual printed image, use "impressions." Avoid the controversial expression "original prints," except in reference to discussions of the expression's use. If prints are neither "reproductive prints" nor "popular prints," use the simple term "prints." With regard to photographs, prefer "photographic prints"; for types of reproductions of technical drawings and documents, see terms found under "reprographic copies."
