Product details English Assassin Painted by France

English Assassin Painted by France

John Tenniel

'English Assassin Painted by France', 1864. The distance between France and Britain at this time is illustrated by the comment made by M Le Verrier. In this cartoon, a benign and jocular John Bull is posing for a portrait that France is painting. The depiction of Mr Bull, though, shows him as a heavily armed brigand. This actually relates to two different stories. The first relates to a trial taking place in France of a man involved in some assassination plot during the course of which it had been alleged that an English MP had been in some way involved in the plot - an allegation furiously rejected by the House. The other part relates to a story in the French journal Le Sport alleging that Britain was planning to present an exhibition of ballet girls. From Punch, or the London Charivari, March 12, 1864.
