ROBIDA, Albert. [The Appetite of the German Octopus]
L'Appétit de la Peuvre. Paris, c.1914. Chromolithograph. Sheet 360 x 260mm. Wear to edges.
A French satire on the aggressively expansionist policies of Germany, depicting the German Eagle with octopus tentacles enveloping the world. Robida worked for this 'La Caricature' magazine between 1880 and 1892, appearing in 650 issues, often on the cover. As well as his caricature work he was also a visionary: his sketches of war depict guided missiles and poison gas. Another sketch showed a mountaineer enjoying the view while listening to his 'phono-opéragraphe', with cables connected to his ears.
