This exhibition is dedicated to the inherent link between Napoleon Bonaparte and the satire that exists on both sides of the English Channel.
2015 marks the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo and some 200 years ago, British and French satirists found inspiration into the political and military tensions existing between the two countries and exploited a new visual language combining caricature and traditional satire with the vigorous narrative introduced by Hogarth earlier in the century.
This exhibition includes work by James Gillray, Thomas Rowlandson, Richard Newton and George Cruikshank, some of the most thoughtful and inventive artists of their day. Visitors will be able to compare the satirical drawings with some more sober view of Napoleon.
