CARAN D\'ACHE 

Caran of Ache, his real name Emmanuel Poiré, is a funny draftsman and a French caricaturist of the XIXth century of great fame, an important cultural or environmental interest of which him works present undoubtedly.

He quickly adopts Caran d' Ache's pen name, directly transcribed by karandach Russian, word meaning "pencil" (and stemming from the Turk kara tash: black stone).

From 1886, he publishes his funny drawings in The Black cat, The Tout-Paris, The Life in the services, The Caricature, The Newspaper, among others. He also ventures on the comic strip in 1885, on the töpferrien model, with the Story of Marlborough. For the theater of shade of the cabaret The black cat, it created The Epic, a play in shade quibbles about the theme of the napoleonic wars. In 1894, he sends to the Figaro a letter describing a big project: the drawn novel. This work, which Caran d' Ache plans to call Maestro is published however never of alive of the author: 120 pages are published by the CNBDI in 1999.


In 1898, Caran d' Ache was also a co-founder, a publisher, a draftsman and an organizer of the newspaper Psst! AntiDreyfusard satiric weekly. In this editorial adventure to the taste not always of the lightest, was associated, during all his duration ( 85 deliveries), his friend Jean-Louis Forain ( 1852-1931 ), painter, engraver and, as him, draftsman, but in a register more "disenchanted" than that of Caran d' Ache. His drawing undoubtedly the most famous is the shortcut seizing that it made, on February 14th, 1898, in the columns of the Figaro, some family quarrels arisen from the Dreyfus affair, which divided profoundly France in the hinge of the XIXth and XXth centuries.
