    Louis Philibert Debucourt (French, 1755–1832)
    Etching, engraving, and aquatint printed in color

    14 3/8 x 23 1/4 in. (36.5 x 59.1 cm)
    The Elisha Whittelsey Collection, The Elisha Whittelsey Fund, 1961 (61.531)

    An accomplished printmaker and social satirist, Debucourt matched wits with British caricaturists as revolutions roiled at home and abroad. While Paris prepared for a bloodbath, Debucourt pictured the swells admiring each other in the Palais Royale gardens. Rowlandson's color aquatint of the satisfied crowd in London's lush Vauxhall Gardens provided inspiration.
