About This Piece
The Art
The Beast of Burden John Bull is depicted trying to persuade the camel representing Egypt and laden with political issues to move whilst France offers to take over the task At the beginning of news arrived that the Mahdi a former government official in the Sudan now styling himself as Messiah was mustering an army to advance upon Khartoum Political opinion on the appropriate course of action was divided but the opposition Conservative Party called for France to be excluded from interference in the affairs of Egypt even if that meant that British forces must occupy Egypt to maintain control From Punch or the London Charivari January

This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.
