About this artwork

Here Daumier targeted the bourgeois newspaper Le Constitutionnel, a mouthpiece for the monarch run by Louis Philippe’s deputy Charles-Guillaume Étienne. The paper is portrayed as a corpulent woman with a gourd-like head and a face belonging to Étienne. Pear-shaped globules hang from her ears, and an imperialistic profile of Louis Philippe nestles between her ample breasts.
