Title

A French Gentleman of the Court of Louis XVI. A French Gentleman of the Court of Egalité, 1799

Description

A sarcastic treatment from England of French manners that contrasts the weakness of the old regime with revolutionary arrogance. The engraver also seems to be pointing toward two entirely different views of masculinity.
