Satirical Print of Literary Societies, Jean-Louis Van Hemelryck, 1826

paper, h 205mm × w 265mm More details

Everybody is smoking, even children and pets. Some are having difficulty staying awake. In short, this is not exactly socially acceptable behaviour. Societies for reviewing the Dutch language and literature were founded in Belgium in the 19th century. However, they were criticized for studying so little in real life. The spelling errors in the title refer to this as well, for it should read: La Société de la Littérature.
