Le Magasin Pittoresque was a French magazine published from 1834 to 1940. It was one of the first magazines in France to feature illustrations and photographs, and it provided readers with a wide range of topics including literature, science, history, art, fashion, and travel. The magazine also featured articles on foreign cultures and customs as well as reports on current events. Its content was aimed at both adults and children alike, known for its high-quality illustrations which were often hand-colored by artists such as Honoré Daumier or Jean Gigoux. The magazine ceased publication in 1940 due to the outbreak of World War II but its legacy lives on through its influence on later publications such as National Geographic Magazine.
