Daniel de Losques

I didn’t write about Daniel de Losques centenary in August, and nobody wrote. Such an excellent artist is completely forgotten, what a pity.

He died in an air combat on 9 August 1915, during I World War.

Daniel de Losques

Daniel de Losques (1880-1915) was a famous French caricaturist. I’ll write a post about him, and here’s a link to a book of his pictures: Daniel de Losques. Au palais de glace. (Ceux qui patinent. Ceux qui badinent.)

By the way, there’s a little problem with this book: BNF and google books insist it was created by de Losques, but some other sources say its author is Sem 🙂
