About this work
In the upper left corner, an illustration of the boxes in which the product is sold: on the left, a multicolour box, on the right a blue box
In the centre, a self-satisfied man smiles as an unsmiling serving girl brings a tureen of soup to his table: he enjoys a good digestion ("freedom of the belly"), thanks to Dr Franck's pills. Around are four roundels illustrating other freedoms: (top left) freedom of speech, in which a speaker on stage exchanges insults with a heckling crowd; (bottom left) freedom of hunting, in which hunters with guns and hounds look for birds or rabbit; (top right) freedom of marriage, in which one scene shows many women pressing around one man and the other shows one man proposing to a woman with many admirers; and freedom of work, in which an idler lies in the fields outside an industrial town and tells his wife and child that he only works on Sundays
