The Pear:
French Graphic Arts
in the Golden Age
of Caricature

by Elise K. Kenney
& John M. Merriman
Mount Holyoke College

Politics joined connoisseurship. Louis Philippe's sizable jowls gave his head a pear shape that, combined with his ponderous trunk, provided an irresistable target for caricaturists.
