Yves et Barret (fl. c. 1870 - 1890) were French engravers active in the late 19th century. They engraved political cartoons and other images for French periodicals, including La Vie Parisienne. This partnership was known for creating works using gillotage, a now obsolete lithographic process wherein a drawing was made on or transferred to zinc and then dusted with resin, which adhered to the drawing. The resin then acted as an acid-resist when the entire plate was immersed in acid, creating a relief block that could then be inked and printed from. This printing technique was popular with newspapers, as it was completely compatible with blocks of type.
