French painter, caricaturist, lithographer, draftsman and illustrator. He studied mathematics and engineering, worked for an architect and for a manufacturer of precision instruments before his first published lithograph in 1824. Gavarni gained popularity with his contributions to fashion magazines and satirical journals, 1830-1847. In 1833 he founded and directed "Le Journal des gens du monde," which soon failed and caused his imprisonment for debt in 1835. His later work revealed a bitterly satirical social view.
Gavarni died 11/24/1866; Paris, France.
