Portrait authentique de Sallot dit Casque de Fer, D'apres une photographie communiquee par M Francal, notre correspondant a Foix.' French wood-engraving, title page of La Lune, 4th August 1867. Andre Gill was a French caricaturist. Born Louis-Alexandre Gosset de Guines at Paris,, he studied at this city's Academy of Fine Arts. He adopted the pseudonym Andre Gill in homage to his hero, James Gillray. Gill began illustrating for Le Journal Amusant. Gill, however, became known for his work for the weekly four-sheet newspaper La Lune, edited by Francis Polo, in which he drew portraits for a series entitled The Man of the Day. He worked for La Lune from 1865 to 1868. When La Lune was banned, he worked for the periodical L'Eclipse from 1868 to 1876. Gill also drew for famous periodical Le Charivari. Gill's style, subsequently much imitated, was noted for the enlargement of his subjects' heads, which sat upon undersized bodies. Dentistry interest. Light folds as issued. One light foxing mark.
