Georges Clemenceau, French statesman, 1925

Georges Clemenceau, French statesman, 1925. Clemenceau (1841-1929) served as Prime Minister of France from 1906-1909 and returned to the premiership in 1917 during the First World War and galvanised French morale undermined by the disastrous Nivelle Offensive and the army mutinies that followed it. After the war finished Clemenceau was one of the architects of the Treaty of Versailles. In the 1890s he was a prominent supporter of the disgraced Captain Albert Dreyfus and in 1898 published Emile Zola's famous open letter J'accuse on the front page of L'Aurore, the newspaper that he published.

Leon Gambetta, French statesman, 1882.Artist: Lock & Whitfield

Leon Gambetta, French statesman, 1882. A Republican politician, Gambetta (1838-1882), was an opponent of the French Second Empire. In 1870 he proclaimed the Third Republic after Napoleon III was captured by the Prussians after the Battle of Sedan. Gambetta himself famously escaped from Paris in a hot air balloon when the city was besieged by the Prussians, rallying support for resistance to the invaders in the provinces. He was influential as the real leader of the republicans in politics in the first decade of the Third Republic, but did not actually hold office until a brief and unsuccessful period as premier in 1881-1882. From Men of Mark: a gallery of contemporary portraits of men distinguished in the Senate, the Church, in science, literature and art, the army, navy, law, medicine, etc. Photographed from life by Lock and Whitfield, with brief biographical notices by Thompson Cooper. (Conducted by G. C. Whitfield.) (London, 1876-1883)

Between Two Terrors, 1873. Artist: Joseph Swain Featured Print

Between Two Terrors, 1873. Artist: Joseph Swain

Between Two Terrors, 1873. (White and Red). Louis Adolphe Thiers, the first President of the Third Republic, is being embraced by a pleading France. To the right is the threatening figure of Communism, and to the left the shrouded, unaccountable figure of Monarchy. Lately, Thiers position as President had become impossible. He had been endeavouring to steer a course between the left-wing demands of Leon Gambetta and the right-wing demands for a restoration of the monarchy. Thiers had been a major political figure in French politics for some forty years, but now, even though many still believed he was the only man capable of saving France from further internal disturbance, he resigned his office in October 1873. From Punch, or the London Charivari, October 18, 1873
