dc.description.abstract This print shows the submissiveness of the political opportunists and their interdependence with the system. In the foreground of the picture, one can identify Dupin, Kératry, Lobau, and Thiers connected to the throne by very thin threads. The dependence between the House of Orléans and the Bourgeoisie is beautifully demonstrated by Daumier. Also note the fat imprint of the word "Sujet " (subjects). It was Montalivet who proposed this word to Parliament to replace the word "citoyen" (citizen). It shows how far the ruling class had moved away from the people which had elected them. While Daumier’s print appeared on February 9, 1832, his colleague Ramelet did a strikingly similar print, which appeared on December 12, 1832 in Le Charivari. His print however was entirely non-political and caused no injunction by the censor’s office. In the first row we can see: De Podenas, Viennet, Dupin, Thiers, Soult, Gisquet, unknown, Prunelle. While in the second row:Cunin-Gridain (behind Viennet first row), de Kératry, Odier, Lobau, Royer Collard. And the third row consists of: Etienne, de Rigny, Delessert, Barthe, Guizot, d'Argout, Lefebvre (above d'Argout). The entire throne is cluttered with speeches, portfolios and of course Lobau's syringe, a flute and cobwebs whose filaments entangle the grovelling ministers. They are all showing their complete obedience to the throne - in this moment not even occupied by Louis-Philippe. en_US
