Abstract

As a young ‘bohemian’ collective, the Cercle des Hydropathes was characterisedby frivolous humour indicative of the liberal social changes in France’searly Third Republic. This chapter considers how the Cercle des Hydropathes’republican community was personified in humorous portraits on the cover ofits journal L’Hydropathe. It argues that in satirising the club’s collective image,Georges Lorin’s caricatures coherently portrayed the artists through an imagethat promoted Republican liberty as a stable ideal. Instead of rallying supportfor liberal social progression, their club created an environment allowingParisian intellectuals to engage with the way of life that Republican libertiesmade possible.
