dc.description Published in: Le Charivari, August 21, 1830.
dc.description.abstract A woman stands between two men who are seated; the woman represents France while the men represent Charles X during and after his reign. Delteil mentioned in his catalogue raisonné as publication date August 11, 1830. Latest research at the Département de l' Estampe of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France show however that the correct date should be August 21, 1830. (Reg. nr.800.06) This lithograph makes an allusion to the deposing of Charles X. It depicts France between the same person in uniform. One should read this print like a modern cartoon, however starting at the right hand side and going towards the left. On the right side we see Charles X, Comte d'Artois and brother of Louis XVIII happily balancing on his chair, drinking a bottle of wine and still in possession of his sable. In the center of the print, we can see France holding a sword in her hand and leaning on the sheath of her weapon. She is looking down on the same king at the end of the uprising. He is now sitting on the same chair, depressed and looking shamefully to the ground. His sword is lying inoffensively in his lap. It will not take long before he will have to go into exile to England for violating civil rights including the freedom of press. The insurrection of the French people peaked at the end of July and ended the reign of Charles X. Provost interprets this print as Charles X and the Duc and Duchesse d'Angoulême. This early print shows the influence of Grandville, who worked together with Daumier at the Charivari.
