L'Illustration was a weekly French newspaper, established by Edouard Charton in 1843. It is remembered as the first French newspaper to publish a photograph.

During World War IIĀ  L'Illustration published Nazi propaganda, and was, as a result, shut down in 1944 following the liberation of France. In 1945, it was re-established as France-Illustration. It ceased publication in 1957.
