Caption

Bankruptcy punishment. Historical artwork showing bankrupt men being punished in a pillory in 16th-century France. Notices tell the crowd that the men have been convicted of fraudulence and dealing in fake contracts. Sentence was passed by the Lieutenant Civil, the equivalent of a local magistrate. Artwork from 'Le musee criminel: crimes et peines d'autrefois' (The Criminal Museum: Crime and Punishment of the Past, 1899) by French author Henri Vonoven.
