This caricature ridicules the new type of middle-class English tourists who began visiting Paris in large numbers in the mid 19th century. In the splendid setting of the Louvre, the English family seem awkward, unsophisticated and badly dressed. The toothy father negotiates the paintings by zealously following one of the standard guidebooks.
