An Incident in the White Terror, 1815, 1895 Featured 18 Feb 2009 Image

An Incident in the White Terror, 1815, 1895

An Incident in the White Terror, 1815, 1895. General Count Gilly in hiding in a peasant's house in the neighbourhood of Anduze in the South of France. The Second White Terror occurred in France in 1815 after the overthrow of Napoleon and the restoration of the monarchy in the person of Louis XVIII. People suspected of having links to Napoleon or the French Revolution were arrested, imprisoned and, in some cases, executed. Jacques Laurent Gilly, a general under Napoleon, was condemned to death in 1816. He stayed hidden at Anduze until 1819. By 1820 the political climate had become more liberal and Gilly was pardoned and had his rank and honours restored.

John Wilkes, English politician, 1762-1763 (1895) Featured 18 Feb 2009 Image

John Wilkes, English politician, 1762-1763 (1895)

John Wilkes, English politician, 1762-1763 (1895). Study for a cartoon Hogarth produced in 1763. Wilkes is wearing a wig that Hogarth has fashioned into two horns. He holds a cap (entitled liberty in the final cartoon) that Hogarth has positioned to make it look like a halo. On the table are copies of his newspaper The North Briton. In 1762 Hogarth had published a satire, The Times, that, for Hogarth, was unusually anti-war. It angered many politicians, including John Wilkes. Therefore Wilkes attacked Hogarth in The North Briton, by depicting him as an old fool. In response Hogarth produced this engraving.
