"Lithograph By Eugène Le Poitevin: Diableries N ° 2"
"Very different is Eugène Le Poitevin, the marine painter, who popularized a very different genre but whose impact was no less great. Proceeding in a straight line from the Mephistopheles of Faust and the bizarre tendencies of the romantic school, the devils of this artist came to throw a picturesque note (...) Les Diables, Petits subjects de diables, Diabolical oddities, Encore des Diableries; it is under these titles that the brown cover albums of Le Poitevin were spread everywhere. soon Bayalos with his Diablotins and Michel Delaporte with his devilish-phantasmagoric Recreations. White devils and black devils followed by red devils and green devils. The devil slipped everywhere, committing a thousand incongruities (...) always having at his service a incalculable number of little imps running wrongly and through the leaves.
