Social satire: a woman is surprised to see her husband burst into a room in which she is taking tea with a fashionable and handsome young man. After Charles Philipon (1800 - 1862), a satirical print for Paris periodical 'Le Charivari', published in that title's first year. Under the regime of Charles X until the Revolution of 1830 the political caricature was prohibited by censorship and therefore Philipon's work focused more on social classes and Parisian types. In November 1830 he started publishing 'La Caricature', devoted to political satire. In 1832 he published the 'Charivari' with his brother-in-law Gabriel Aubert, with whom he founded the famous publishing house Maison Aubert.
