This drawing by Auguste Roubille is a design for one such full-page advertisement for the magazine, which appeared in the issue of La Revue Blanche of 15th April 1898. Le Cri de Paris continued to appear long after the demise of La Revue Blanche in 1903. After more than two thousand issues, it ceased publication shortly before the German occupation of Paris in June 1940.
