French Revolution [French Revolution]

The tree of liberty must be planted immediately!, by James Gillray (died 1815), published 1797. See source website for additional information.

English: The Tree of LIBERTY, – with, the Devil tempting John Bull: A caricature by James Gillray, showing Charles James Fox as Satan, tempting John Bull with the rotten fruit of the opposition tree of Liberty. John's pockets are already full with the golden apples of the loyalist tree in the background.

Round a bare and decayed oak tree is twined a serpent with the head of Fox; he holds a damaged apple inscribed "reform" to John Bull, who is fat and his pockets bulge with golden apples. The trunk of the tree is "opposition"; its roots are: envy, ambition, disappointment. Each rotten apple has an inscription: democracy, treason, slavery, etc. In the background is an oak in full leaf: its trunk is "Justice", the roots Commons, King, Lords, the branches Laws and Religion. From it hangs a crown surrounded by apples, some inscribed Freedom, Happiness, Security.




Artemis Bendis (on the right, wearing a Phrygian cap, a short tunic, high boots and an animal skin) and her followers, maybe athletes taking part in the torch relay race in honour of the goddess. Marble votive relief, made in Athens, ca. 400-375 BC. Said to be from Piraeus, more probably from the area of a sanctuary of Bendis on the Mounichia Hill.

A cartoon apparently expressing a rather sour German point of view on the British-French "Entente Cordiale" of 1904 -- John Bull walks off with the trollop France (in her scandalously short tricolor skirt, whose red and blue colors are indicated by the conventions of heraldic "hatching"), while Germany pretends not to care.
