Paris in the 1830s was under the spell of imagery and literature on the devil. One of the first prints of what was to become known as 'diableries' was "La procession du diable", a design by Paul Gavarni, first published in La Caricature of March 24, 1831. The fashion lasted at least until the publication of Le Diable à Paris(1845-46) and Physiologie du diable (1842). Diabolico foutro manie (1835)
Les Diableries is the title of a series of stereoscopic photographs published in Paris during the 1860s. The photographs, commonly known as stereoviews, portray sculpted clay vignettes which depict scenes of daily life in Hell. Much of the subject matter was satirical and mirrored the corruption and excess of Paris during the Second Empire. Napoleon III’s authoritarian rule was repeatedly the subject of criticism, as was the decadent lifestyle of the bourgeoisie.
