dc.description.abstract This lithograph is a portrait of Dupin. The coat of arms created by Philipon shows a money bag (corruption), a weather-vane (wryneck) and a pair of worn out shoes (insinuation to Dupin's useless march to the Duc d'Orléans). The text shows that he is able to plead for and against the same cause. André-Marie-Jean-Jacques, aîné Dupin , (1783-1865) was President of the Chamber of Representatives as well as Attorney General. Apart from that he held numerous other important Government positions. He was portrayed by Daumier both in a terracotta sculpture and in several lithographs. The abbreviation "DUP" is an insinuation to his limited intelligence. Nevertheless, Dupin was a well-known lawyer who adeptly defended Marshal Ney as well as the republican poet and singer Béranger. Dupin surely must be considered one of the more important politicians of his period, showing a certain trend towards liberal political ideas. It was he who suggested to the future King, the Duc d’Orléans, to choose the name Louis-Philippe rather than Philippe VII. In 1832, he was nominated member of the Académie Française and became President of the Chamber.
