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

Engraving of the royal family depicted as animals

Annotation

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.

Translation

Title in French
Les Animaux rares : ou la translation de la ménagerie royale au Temple, le 20 aoust 1792, 4.me de la liberté et 1.er de l'égalité
