Collection: French Illustrator Benjamin Rabier

Benjamin Rabier


The famous french artist Benjamin Rabier (1864-1939) is perhaps best known for the laughing cow he created for the "Vache Qui Rit" cheese.

Born in La Roche sur Yon in 1864, he began his career as an artist at the famous Lorraine printing enterprise Epinal and later began publishing carictaures and drawings for periodicals.

From around 1906 Rabier specialized in Children's books, many of them illustrated with farm animals. One of the most popular of these was the duck named Gédéon.
