- Curator's comments
- 'L'Association mensuelle lithographique' is a special edition of 'La Caricature' created in 1832 by Philipon to cover legal costs. For an extra franc, subscribers to 'L'Association Mensuelle' received an exclusive lithograph printed on white paper.
This is the only etching of 'L'Association Mensuelle' (the other satires are all lithographs). According to Philipon's description, it is also the first etching executed by Grandville. It refers to the interpretation of a dream Philipon had, in which some people were devoured by monsters representing different kinds of taxes (property, personal, direct, indirect, etc.).
Philipon's description of the etching is on a separate sheet.
