Le Replâtrage

Charles Philipon
Lithograph
published in
La Caricature
June 30, 1831

Louis-Philippe, dressed as a stonemason plastering over the unfulfilled promises he made during the Revolution of 1830.

This caricature prompted La Caricature's first seizure by authorities.

Philipon went to trial where he made the famous sketches that transformed the king's face into a pear.
