Paris en 1871.
Paris en 1871.
A. Martial Potément inv. et fecit.
[n.d., c.1871.]
Etching, with large margins. 420 x 380mm, 16½ x 15". Margins creased.
Although Adolphe Potémont Martial (1828-83) primarily published topographical etchings of Paris, this has a more political motive. It celebrates the Paris Commune, established when the city revolted against the government that had surrendered to the besieging German army the year before. In the centre is the city arms, with a ship on a stormy sea with the motto "Fluctuat nec mergitur" ("It is tossed by the waves, but does not sink"), with a communard on the left and a German, wearing the spiked 'Pickelhaube' helmet on the right.
Potément published a series of etchings called 'Paris: Siège et Commune' at the end of 1871, but this print is much larger.
