dc.description Published in: Le Charivari, August 15, 1859.
dc.description.abstract A woman stares admiringly at a Zouave soldier walking by and wants to look at him longer. Her husband says no as it would be shameful if she were to have a black baby because she looked at him. AU CAMP DE St.MAUR (At the St. Maur Encampment) is a series of 5 prints, which appeared in the Charivari in August and September 1859. During that period, the Charivari published several prints showing this exotic troop during their stay in a camp near Paris. ZOUAVES, TURCOS. The Zouaves were white French soldiers, whose regiments had fought together with the Chasseurs d’Afrique and the Spahis in Northern Africa. Their exotic uniforms were adjusted to the African climate and caused great admiration in Parisian society. The Turcos however were a purely North African troop, mainly consisting of Algerians and also wearing quite exotic, colourful outfits. These battalions were highly successful during the war against Austria and later again during the Crimean war. The name “Turcos” is actually a misinterpretation. The Russians, during the Crimean war, when seeing these soldiers in their colourful African uniforms mistakenly identified them as “Turcos” (Turkish troops). The name thus remained, although these soldiers were of Algerian nationality.
