Anti-Semitic plate, lithograph, handpainted soon after it was printed. Published by Epinal. The lithograph was manufactured by Oliver o Pinot.

The lithograph is accompanied with anti-Semitic, rhymed stanzas in French regarding the Wandering Jew. The illustration depicts a Jew with a long curly beard, long nose, and wandering stick. The people around him, as if the local children, are relatively clean and neat - and everybody looks at him with a critical look.

Similar lithographs were printed in 19th century France with the title "LA Juif Errant," with the same poem, but with illustrations by Fracois Georgin.

Size: 40x30 cm.

Fine condition.
