La Nouvelle Loi Electorale - Ah ! monsieur le president, qui aurait dit qu'un jour on nous mettrait tous les deux dans le meme sac !' Original lithograph by Cham published in Paris circa 1840. Signed 'CHAM' in the image. From a series titled 'Croquades Politiques' which was published in the French magazine 'Le Charivari'. 'Cham' was the pseudonym for Amedee-Charles-Henri, the second son of Comte Louis de Noe. Cham studied painting under Paul Delaroche and the art of lithography in the studio of Nicholas-Toussaint Charlet. His first lithograph was published in 1839 and for the following forty years his art concentrated upon amusing scenes of middle class life, ranging from the foibles of fashion to the hazards of horse racing. His many lithographs comprise a wonderful study of French life and culture during the mid nineteenth century.
