L'Execution du Marauder.
Rare hand-coloured lithograph, image 190 x 300mm (7½ x 11¾"). Some margin trimmed; glued to backing.
Anthropomorphic satire: a black cat in a human smock faces a firing squad of monkeys dressed in the uniforms of French infantrymen. A monkey drummer-boy watches the scene, saluting(?); a tent, fortress and some cavalry in the background. Under Charles X's regime until the Revolution of 1830 the political caricature was prohibited by censorship in France.
