The Crushed Aristocracy

Dublin Core

Title

The Crushed Aristocracy

Description

This image uses the classical figures of an angel and a cherub to celebrate the achievements of Louis XVI on the base of a statue. The words state that he has destroyed the "aristocracy" and established the liberty of the French people. The monarch’s action is equated with the other great reminder of national emancipation, the Bastille, seen in the background.
