"Hell Broke Loose, or, The Murder of Louis"
In this English image, as the Kings head is about to fall into the executioners basket, bats out of Hell emerge, symbolizing the Revolution. At the same time, Gods favor seems to fall on Louis through a shaft of light coming from heaven. From the first, some English, especially Edmund Burke, were skeptical, indeed critical of the Revolution, and the numbers grew over time. In addition, the English had a thriving group of political cartoonists. These two factors helped produce some very interesting counterrevolutionary images.
