Poster Print of 'The Real Barbarian from China', 1861
'The Real Barbarian from China', 1861. A sullen Chinese man, representing China, presents Britannia with cash, presumably to settle all or part of the commitment China was forced to agree to after the Convention of Tientsin, in the hope that it would then be indemnified against further action. The Convention of Tientsin between Britain, France and China had provided for the sum of 3, 000 taels to be paid to all those who had suffered at the hands of the Chinese during the recent war. This war had occurred as Britain and France had felt that China had reneged on the terms of the Treaty of Tientsin, which gave the two countries certain commercial concessions. China had shown signs to wanting to renege on the terms of the Convention and had been threatened with further military action. From Punch, or the London Charivari, January 5, 1861
