Item Description
Title Banquet D'Ignobles Convives A Wilhelmshœhe
Alternative Title Banquet of the Infamous Guests at Wilhelmshoehe
Description This is a political caricature related to the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 or the Paris Commune of 1871. Within illus.: Paris. Metz. Caption: "Pendent que Guillaume, chargé des fonctions d'officier-tranchant, essaie de déployer toute son habilité pour entamer le plat de résistance appelé PARIS, voici l'un des principaux aides de la cuisine impériale et royale, qui apporte en grande pompe un énorme gâteau étiqueté METZ. Il est accuelli par les transports de joie de Badinguet déjà un peu échauffé. Les autres convives quoique satisfaits, sont moins expansifs dans leurs témoignages d'allégresse. Fleury est tout occupé à conter fleurette à Mme. Badinguet, qui lui fait des yeux en coulisse. Lebœuf et Canrobert dissertent sur le menu du repas. Notre Fritz, étourdi par le Champagne cuve son vin et se laisse aller au sommeil." Caption (English translation): "While Guillaume, charged with the duties of [officier-tranchant], tries to deploy all his skill to cut into the main course called PARIS, one of the main supports of the imperial and royal kitchen appears, bringing with great fanfare a huge cake labeled METZ. It is received by the joy of Badinguet already a little stirred. The other guests even though satisfied, are less obvious in their expressions of joy. Fleury occupies himself in courting Mademoiselle Badinguet who looks aside. Labeouf and Canrobert talk about the planned menu. Our Fritz, fuddled by the champagne, ferments his wine and abandons himself to sleep."
