"The Little Cartesian Devil": German Peasants Capturing the Little Devil Napoleon

Dublin Core

Title

"The Little Cartesian Devil": German Peasants Capturing the Little Devil Napoleon

Description

The reversal of circumstances that German cartoonists emphasized seemed generally to exercise considerable sway over this use of symbols. Here, Napoleon, who strode so large over Europe, is bottled and examined. Obsessed with his small stature, Napoleon might have been particularly displeased with this image.
