Napoleon on the spot

In jan. 2012 I visited the last exibition for this moment in the Netherlands about Napoleon.
It was at the Schiemanshuis in Rotterdam.
Napoleon stayed here from 25 till 27 october 1811. He was 'on the spot' so to say.
All the printings I saw were caricatures on Napoleon.
The most from England (of course!), but also some from Holland.
Below you see some of these.
The last picture are the keys of Rotterdam as offered to Napoleon.
