A. Müller-Schönhausen, Peace Dispatches 1871 [Die Friedensdepesche 1871] (1871/72)

In this reproduction of a color painting by A. Müller-Schönhausen (b. 1838), Germans’ joy over their defeat of the French (signified by the flags flying in the background) is juxtaposed with their hopes for a conclusive peace (as evidenced by the eagerness with which the figures read news from the front).
