Definitions for "Amédée de Noé"
Charles Amédée de Noé, known as Cham (Jan. 26, 1818 - Sept. 6, 1879) was a French caricaturist and lithographer. Raised by a family who wished him to attend a polytechnic school, he instead attended painting workshops by Nicolas Charlet and Paul Delaroche and began work as a cartoonist, taking on on the pseudonym "Cham". The name was a pun - a combination of the names "Charles" and "Amédée", and the Jewish name for Ham, son of Noah (Noah in French is Noé).
