This colorful poster depicts the theme of the controversial author Victor Joseph's novel "Reine de Joie" ("Queen of Joy"). The story follows a young Parisian courtesan who convinced the wealthy Jewish banker Baron de Rosenfeld to compensate her with money in exchange for her services. Rosenfeld was a fictional character but was said to be loosely based on the real Baron de Rothschild, and Jozes drew up anti-Semitic stereotypes of the 1890s that characterized Jewish bankers as greedy, dishonest and unrefined. The poster and book caused great protests from Rothschild and his friends who erased and destroyed the poster that had been set up around Paris.
