Musée des Horreurs, No. 42, Nathan Mayer

  • 1900
  • 19 1/2 x 25 inches ~ (48 x 63 cm)
  • Linen backed

    Linen backing is the industry standard of conservation. Canvas is stretchered and a sheet of acid free barrier paper is laid down. The poster is then pasted to the acid free paper using an acid free paste. This process is fully reversible and gives support to the poster. A border of linen is left around the poster and can be used by a framer to mount the poster so that nothing touches the poster itself.

    The price of this poster includes linen backing.

  • Caricature of Nathan Meyer Rothschild (1777-1836) as a dog scavenging gold pieces on the battlefield of Waterloo. Nathan Meyer Rothschild, a Jew and member of the British House of Lords, was a member of the prominent Rothschild family of Jewish financiers that became easy targets for anti-semitic outrage during the Dreyfus Affair even though they had little or no direct involvement.

    The Musee des Horreurs consisted of 52 caricatures depicting the anti-Semitic sentiment in France during the Dreyfus Affair, published between 1899 and 1900.
