Le Voyage de Polichinelle, by Job

Jacques Onfray de Bréville, best known under his signature Job, was born in Bar-le-Duc. Against the will of his father, he wanted to study Fine Arts, but eventually joined the Army. Back in civil life in 1882, he attended the School of Fine Arts and began working as a painter and caricaturist.

Le Voyage de Polichinelle, by Job

He illustrated children's books and made several historical and patriotic books about French history with Georges Montorgueil. He contributed to the picture story prints of the Imagerie Quantin in Paris (a.o. 'Le Condamné a Mort', 'Le Voyage de Polichinelle').
