Rare lithography by Daumier published in number 161 the journal "La Caricature" in 1833, plate N° 337 / 338.
Proof on blanc paper, in original colors and heightened with gum arabic.
There are very few samples of this print recorded and can be considered extremely rare. The caption comes from one of Molière's plays.
The print shows from left to right: King Louis-Philippe, a coachman (the French people?), Ferdinand Duc d'Orléans, and Marshal Lobau with his famous syringe.
Louis-Philippe in 1833 bleeds a mail messenger (postillon) who has fallen off his horse, thereby saving his life. The King had learned the art of blood-letting in a hospital in his youth and always carried a bleeding-knife on him. Symbolically it is not the postillon, but rather the French nation which is being bled.
- Louis LEROY was a medical doctor and author of various medical articles and books.
- Georges Mouton, Conte de LOBAU (1770-1838) participated in the Napoleonic Wars as a General. He was peered in 1809 and after a short period as prisoner in England he returned to France in 1818.
He was a politician and from 1828 to 1833 Deputy and served as General of the National Guard from 1830 on. In May 1831, he dispersed a Bonapartist manifestation on Place Vendôme by using water hoses from the fire fighters. For this reason he was nicknamed “Prince de tricanule” and “Seringot”.
Known chiefly as a political and social satirist, Honoré DAUMIER (1808-1879) used the printmaking process of lithography, still relatively new at the time, to contribute cartoons and caricatures to French news weeklies.
