From Instagram: “Two new free displays are now open in Rooms 90 & 91! #BonaparteAndTheBritish #PacificBarkcloth To mark #Waterloo200 this year, #BonaparteAndTheBritish will focus on the printed propaganda that either reviled or glorified Napoleon Bonaparte, on both sides of the English Channel. It explores how his formidable career coincided with the peak of political satire as an art form. The exhibition will include works by British and French satirists who were inspired by political and military tensions to exploit a new visual language combining caricature and traditional satire with the vigorous narrative introduced by Hogarth earlier in the century. #exhibition #London #free #Napoleon” by britishmuseum
