'Ci devant Occupations' or 'Madam Talien and the Empress Josephine', A rare print by James Gillray, pub Feb 20th 1805 engraving with later hand colouring, sheet size 34 x 48cm within a mount. According to slanderous gossip, the young general Napoleon, who peeks through the curtains at the right, first laid eyes on his future wife as she danced naked for the comte de Barras. The latter was a leading politician who had made Josephine his mistress but then had grown tired of her. According to the text below the image, Barras offered Napoleon the leadership of an Egyptian campaign if he would take the lady as well. The artist's long-standing anti- French bias was sparked, in this instance, by the recent coronation of the imperial couple in a ceremony whose excesses were widely mocked in Britain.
