A framed hand-coloured lithograph by Honoré Daumier - Robert Macaire, business agent, from 'Caricaturana', published in Les Robert Macaires 1838.
Translation of the text is:
‘Yesterday I made a mistake when I said that your business is in good shape. It's detestable. The government owes you five hundred thousand francs, it's true, but the debt hasn't been recognized, there's a forfeiture today, you won't have a penny. However, come to think of it, there's Mr. de St. Bertrand, a rich capitalist, an imbecile, sell him your interests for a hundred crowns, that'll be a splendid deal... (aside) and not expensive.’
