- According to Armelhault & Bocher, the series 'Les Lorettes Vieillies' comprised thirty lithographs printed by Lemercier, nineteen of which were published in the periodical 'Paris'. The lithographs which were not published, ie. Pls 3-5, Pls 9-10 and Pls 25-30, were only added when the series was pblished as an album. The journal ran from 20 October 1852 until 8 December 1853, after which it was suppressed by the authorities.
'Les Lorettes Vieillies' is one of 18 sub-series forming the large series 'Masques et Visages' consisting of prints by various artists, many of them published in 'Paris'. Gavarni's lithographs for 'Masques et Visages were also printed 'sur blanc', ie. without text on the verso, in individual sets forming albums.
