Description This is a political caricature related to the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 or the Paris Commune of 1871. From the newspaper Le Charivari. Caption: "Didon. -Faut-il que le public soit crétin et injuste! On me blague si je pleure, on me blague si je ris. Faut pourtant que je fasse quelque chose.// -Laissez-moi tranquille, je ne vous connais pas. Je porte ce tableau à l'exposition. -Je vous en supplie, ne passez pas devant la bourse avec cette bataille! Vous allez faire tomber la rente!// -Sortez, monsieur, sortez! -Tiens! on m'avait dit que les chevaux seraient admis à l'exposition.// Manière de concilier les choses de façon à ce que l'exposition chevaline ne fasse pas tort à l'exposition de sculpture.// Le chevaux dans le parterre du palais de l'Exposition finissant par être agacés à la vue des croûtes qu'on leur passe devant le nez pour les monter à l'étage supérieur.// -Ne vous gênez pas! nous cherchions ce tableau-là partout. -Je l'ai pris en attendant que l'on ait organisé les mangeoires.// -Vous êtes très bien placé derrière la porte, a l'abri de ces affreux journalistes qui vous éreinteraient s'ils vous voyaient.// Nouvelle forme de cadre pour les portraits à la mode du jour.// -Ah! mon dieu! qu'est-ce qu'il te dit? Tu vas être pendu! -Oui, madame, on va accrocher son tableau.// -Faites donc attention! Au lieu de l'accrocher vous le laissez tomber. -J'ai entendu dire à monsieur que ce genre de peinture demandant à être lâche.// -Comment! un homme dans ta position sociale! -Que veux tu. Je n'ai pu me faire admettre comme dineur et je désire y assister.// -Madame la comtesse, une bonne action ne reste jamais sans récompense. Je vais vous embrasser." Caption (English translation): "Dido- It is necessary that the public be moronic and unjust! They joke if I cry, the joke if I laugh. Even so, I must do something.// -Leave me alone. I do not know you. I’m carrying this painting to the Exposition. -I beg you, do not walk by the Paris Bourse with this painting! You will make the government stock drop!// -Get out, sir, get out! -Here! They told me that they would admit horses at the Exposition.// How to balance things so that the horse exhibition does not harm the sculpture exhibition.// The horses on the lawn of the palace of the exhibition ended up getting annoyed at the sight of the daubs/paintings that the passed in front of their nose up to the top floor.// -Don’t bother! We were looking all over for this painting. -I was taking care of it until you organized the feeders/mangers.// You are very well hidden/placed behind the door, away from those terrible journalists that would kill you if you saw you.// New shape of frame for portraits up to the fashion of the day.// Oh my! What did he say to you? You’ll be hanged! -Yes Madame, we’ll hang his painting.// So listen/be careful! Instead of hanging them you will let them fall. -I’ve heard mister say that this type of painting must be dropped.// How! A man in/from your social class/position! -What do you want? I couldn’t attend as a guest and I wanted to come.// Madame la Comtesse, a good deed is never without reward. I'll kiss you."
