(Parisian sketches) are titles of a series containing total of 120 prints. They were published in the Charivari, in the Journal Amusant and in the Petit Journal pour Rire between September 1852 and February 1877.

ABOUT THIS SERIES. Similar to the series “Les bons bourgeois” the Croquis Parisiens are dealing with numerous small misfortunes in the life of the Parisians. They were especially impressed by the possibilities opened by the railroad. Travels to the surroundings and the French province were both exciting and startling experiences.

Apart from these drawings, this series also offers beautiful observations like the elderly couple remembering youth; memories and transience with a pensive humour, and never offending.
