Pharoah's fat kine - pharoah's lean kine

By artist. 1756?-1811? Isaac Cruikshank


Print shows, on the left, in England, two corpulent, jovial men and an equally rotund woman providing them with drink, possibly sherry, and on the right, in France, two listless, thin, bony women sitting on sofas and an equally emaciated man standing before them, about to lose his wig to a bird on a cage overhead. A contrast between the health of the two nations, in particular, how Napoleon's Egyptian campaign is having an adverse affect on France.Title from item.Forms part of: British Cartoon Prints Collection (Library of Congress)
