This cartoon is one of several created by French satirist
Honoré Daumier making fun of the
great comet of 1857 that never was.
This lithograph shows Monsier Babinet (a popularist scientist) looking for
the comet in the wrong place ignoring the housekeeper's attempts to get his
attention. The original caption reads, "Monsier Babinet prévenu
par sa portiére de la visite de la comète."
