Step into the world of the butchershop, where history and culture intertwine with the art of meat preparation. From the Slaughterhouse rakes of Les Halles in Paris, 1859 to the hungry inhabitants waiting their turn during the war of 1870-1871 against Prussia, this place has witnessed it all. In Clement Auguste Andrieux's painting from 1871, we see a scene depicting the aftermath of war - a testament to survival and sustenance. The legalite-sanitation resistance poster reveals an intriguing glimpse into life during that time, showcasing prices for dog and cat meat during the siege in 1870 Commune. Honore Daumier's engraving from 1856 introduces us to les hippophages or horse eaters. It humorously captures a butcher offering tender horse meat as an alternative to chicken amidst a food scandal. This highlights how culinary preferences can evolve over time. The production and sale of beef is showcased through stunning imagery where a beef is stunned before being prepared for consumption. Paul Renouard's depiction of merchants at the butchers pavilion in Halles de Paris transports us back to 1886 when bustling markets were filled with fresh cuts and eager customers. Traveling beyond France, we encounter Algeria's oasis of Chelma through an oil on canvas artwork by an unknown artist from 1889-1890. Here, butchers slice goat meat with precision while preserving tradition. Delving further into history takes us back centuries ago when miniature art depicted a butcher slicing goat meat in intricate detail during the ninth century. Meanwhile, stained glass windows from medieval times reveal glimpses into delicatessens featuring horse butchery at Barriere de Fontainebleau in Paris. Even Limoges had its own story to tell as French flags fluttered proudly along its streets dedicated solely to butchery. These flags symbolized unity within the community and a celebration of their craft.
