Anti-Semitic engraving, hand-painted soon after printing. Rome, 1823.

The illustration depicts an anti-Semitic event that was common at the time. A mob of Italians would catch a high-class Jew on one of their festivals and roll him in a wood barrel through the streets. On the left, the Jew's family members can be seen trying to stop the mob from carrying out its plan. On the right, the mob tries to push the barrel with the Jew inside of it, while one of the rabble holds a stone, threatening the family trying to stop them.

Size: 28x20 cm.

Tear in the bottom left corner, with no damage to the engraving.

Fine-very fine condition.
