L’Artiste was a weekly illustrated review published in Paris from 1831 to 1904, supplying "the richest single source of contemporary commentary on artists, exhibitions and trends from the Romantic era to the end of the nineteenth century."[1]

Originally, L'Artiste addressed fine arts and literature, but by 1859, literature became its primary concern. It later absorbed the Revue de Paris.

Important editors included A. Ricourt, H. Delaunay, and Arsène Houssaye. Notably, it published works by Honoré de Balzac, Gérard de Nerval, Théophile Gautier, Jules Janin, Théodore de Banville, Henri Murger, Jules Champfleury, Charles Baudelaire, Joseph Méry, Eugène Sue and Alphonse Esquiros.
