Paul Gavarni was largely self-taught as an artist, having begun his career as a civil servant. In 1829 he submitted a watercolor of the village of Gavarnie in the Pyrenees to the Salon. It was accepted and mistakenly exhibited under the name 'Gavarni'; consently, he decided to adopt the name. He made illustrations for popular Parisian magazines such as Le Charivari, La Mode, La Caricature and Silhouette, providing them with fashion illustrations and satirical drawings. By the 1830s his prints of Parisian life increased his reputation. Among his most devoted admirers were the Goncourt brothers, who published a book on the artist in 1873, as well as Honoré de Balzac and Gustave Flaubert. Edgar Degas owned some two thousand Gavarni lithographs.
