The Giant and the Dwarf. dedicated to M. Thiers. v. Punch Vol 6 p.170
[c.1844]
Pencil sketch, sheet 225 x 185mm (9 x 7¼"). Glued to backing board.
Preparatory sketch (?) for a cartoon published in 'Punch', 20 April 1844, p.170, with various elements (such as the two figures on the right) not in the published cartoon. The image shows the duke of Wellington inspecting a tiny Napoleon with a monocle. As the text in 'Punch' explains, the cartoon was occasioned by the discovery that Napoleon, in a codicil to his will, bequeathed 10,000FF to a man charged with an attempt to murder Wellington. Napoleon wrote that if Wellington justified sending Napoleon to St Helena by appealing to British national interest, then the would-be assassin would have served French interests equally in killing Wellington. However, as 'Punch' reason, Wellington, by objecting to the suggestion of excecuting Napoleon after he was captured, showed himself to be a giant in comparison to Napoleon.

Napoleon leaps in terror from a window, his large bicorne falling off; another French officer steps on to the sill, about to follow. They will inevitably drop into a wash-tub below. The house is a neat log cabin with casement windows. Two flowering plants in pots fall from the sill, pigs scamper off, a cock and hen fly away. A woman scouring a pot looks out in alarm from a lower window. A cat miaows on a pent-house roof. Behind a paling (left) a Cossack with his long spear has dismounted, and hastens towards the house with a satisfied grin; in the background Cossacks gallop across a snowy landscape.

Pitt as a quack doctor supported by Dundas, suggesting that his ''Mint Seed is the most Efficatious Remedy in the World''. A uncaricatured Napoleon, holding three cannon balls in his hand, replies ''I deny that Doctor, my Pills are far more certain in thier operation & much quicker in their effect...''. To the right a grotesque man pushes a short blunderbuss in the face of a gaping and terrified Austrian officer (probably Melas, who asked for an armistice after Marengo, 14 June). A satire on Pitt's policy of subsidizing continental powers, including a subsidy convention had been signed at Vienna for £2,000,000 on June 20th.
