Item Description
Title Avenue De La Grande Armée
Creator (LCNAF)
  • Martial, A. P.
Date May 1871
Description This is a political caricature related to the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 or the Paris Commune of 1871. Within illus.: Pilory of the spies. Paris under the Commune. Note near the bottom of illustration: [Dites] et eaux fortes AP Martial (Sayings and etchings by AP Martial). Caption: "Mai! -Les batteries de Montretout réduisent les maisons d'Auteuil en allumettes. Ses pavés sont tachés de sang! Les jardins en fleurs merveilleux de soleil et d'éclat, recèlent des morts défigurés! La générale est battue a chaque instant. Les journaux supprimés par bordées! La boulangerie est interdite pendant la nuit. Beaucoup de boucheries sont closes. Aucun travail, excepté chez les marchands de vins. Les omnibus charrient des barriques et des vivres pour le service du rempart et des ambulances. Aux Tuleries, dans la salle des marichaux, on donne des concerts a 3 francs au profit des blessés! Deux ou trois théâtres donnent encore des représentations fantastiques. Les comédiens ordinaires, de la rue Richelieu, jouent tartufe devant des Képris de faveur, sans égards pour l'artiste, qui s'arrête souvent tout surpris! A l'Opéra, la Commune et ses ordres sont impuissants, tout manque! Ses cafés font des recettes."
