Caption: 17th Century political satire, historical artwork. 1647 etching by Romeyn de Hooghe entitled 'Den franschen Algemist', satirising the contradicting interests of the Dutch-French War by comparing the events of the war to ingredients being used in a chaotic alchemist's workshop, causing unintended results. The Bishop of Strasbourg is depicted in the bottom three scenes as a devil in form of Dr Faustus.
