Coloured etching. Sheet 245 x 145mm. (9¾ x 5¾"). Trimmed within plate, lacking the explanatory text.
A satirical portrait of Napoleon: his face made of the corpses of those 'who perished on the Plains of Russia and Saxony'; his hat the imperial eagle; his collar the Red Sea, symbolizing those who drowned in sea battles; his tunic is a map of northern Germany, marking battles around the Rhine, Elbe & Oder, over which a spider spins its web.
