The two wanderers heard a few little cries


Quelle

This engraving is from Voltaire’s Candide: it depicts the scene where Candide and Cacambo see two monkeys apparently attacking two nude women. Candide kills the monkeys, then comes to believe the monkeys and women were actually lovers. The image may have been accompanied by the caption, „The two wanderers heard a few little cries“.

Jean-Michel Moreau (1741–1814)
