"Rare Animals; or, the Transfer of the Royal Family from the Tuileries to the Temple. Champfleury, 1792"

Here the events of 10 August were expressed by reducing the royal family to animals. Driven from their palace to prison, the family became no more than a group of barnyard animals. Contrast these common four–footed animals with the erect revolutionary whipping them along. The use of animals here in an English cartoon reveals that anglophone allies of revolutionaries shared the symbolic approaches used in France.
