Calendrier royal indiquant le cours du soleil, 1706
Creator: Unattributed
Call No.: PC 5: 1706.1 (AA)
Note: This caricature attacks the French king, Louis XIV, who sits in the center of a sun, from which sunbeams radiate. This is a pun on his nickname, the Sun King. Descriptions of his negative actions are inscribed on each beam, including incest with the wife of the Dauphin in 1680, massacres in villages in Holland in 1673, and sacrilege in Germany and Italy in 1695. In the upper right lies a moon which eclipses the sun. Printed below image: Eclipse 12 Mai 1706. In general, the power of the French monarchy began to be questioned in 1706, especially with the military defeat of the French army by Marlborough in Spanish Flanders at Ramilles during the War of the Spanish Succession. The battle occurred on May 12, 1706 (May 23 in the new calendar). The defeat at Ramilles as an eclipse was a common theme in caricature at the time. See also PC 1 - 1450 for a British example.

Note: Political allegory shows lobsters guiding a chariot on which is mounted a barrel. A female figure holds the reigns. A male figure, astride on the barrel, rides facing backward, holding an ewer. A small winged boy places a crown on his head. The man looks at another male figure with wings, holding a mirror. Two owls are tethered to the barrel and fly over the chariot. A woman's head emerges from the barrel. She faces downward, vomiting into the large open belly of a fish. The chariot passes a man riding a horse in a caged wheel mounted on a pedestal. A bell is mounted on top of the wheel. Flight of Louis XVI. Plate 44G; [Musee de Caricature?]. A print with a similar title is in de Vinck, v. 2, p. 671, no. 3931, but has eight lines of explanatory text, which this print lacks. The French king, Louis XVI, and his family attempted to flee the palace in the center of Paris, Tuileries, and were arrested in Varennes. The royal family was forcibly returned to Paris on the night of June 25, 1791.
La Consternation, [1806]
Creator: Unattributed
Call No.: PC 5: 1806.2 (A)
Extent: 1 print on paper: engraving with watercolor ; 26 x 35 cm
Note: This political satire on the English shows two men in robes sitting before several rows of similarly garbed men. The king, George III, falls back in his chair, holding his head with one hand and reaching toward the floor with the other. His transparent robe reveals peasant clothing underneath, which alludes to his frequent representation in British caricature as "Farmer George." The other, the English prime minister, stares with an open mouth and large eyes in astonishment as he reads the dispatches, labelled "Dépêches" to the council. The councilmen wink, grimace, purse lips, roll eyes and make other facial gestures. This is one of several caricatures produced at the time about the continental blockade. One print in the series Garde a vous, no. 15. Published in Paris chez Martinet. De Vinck, v. 4, p. 488, no. 8278.

Jugement dernier, [1827]
Creator: Unattributed
Call No.: PC 5: 827.1 (B)
Extent: 1 print: lithograph with watercolor ; 40 x 32 cm
Note: In a political print which reads from lower right, upwards and down to the left, four of the five politicians start in the foreground of the Assemblée Nationale. Next, all five ascend on a cloud into heaven, where an angel prepares to put halos on their heads. God makes a decision not to admit them into heaven, and they are cast down into the fire of hell, where devils and ecclesiastical figures greet them. Maximilien Sebastien Fory (1775-1825), Francois-Alexander-Frederic, duc de La Rochefoucauld-Liancourt (1747-1827), Monuel Pierre-Louis (1775-1827), Stanislas, comte de Girardin (1765-1827), and Jean-Denis, comte Lanjuinais (1753-1827) were noblemen who had emigrated from France during the French Revolution and returned with the Bourbon Restoration. A bill of indemnity to the emigrés was brought before Parliament in 1825, which compensated the owners of forfeited estates for their losses after the Revolution. Large property owners and those with influences at Court were compensated over-generously. Debates in the Lower Chamber resulted in intensified class differences in France. Published by Barella, Brussels.
