Lot 34

Anti-Semitic engraving. France. Les Affaires. 19th century

Anti-Semitic, barbed engraving depicting a Jewish merchant leaning on bags of flour [with the text "Farine" - flour]. Masses of French people walk in front of him, while he jeeringly looks at them and refuses to sell them his merchandise. The Jew has a distorted long nose and is much fatter than the gaunt people he is looking at. At the edge of the picture, next to the thousands of people on the road, two people can be seen lying on the ground, dying from hunger.

Size: 25x23 cm. Mounted on a protective cardboard surface.

Fine condition.
