The victims of the July Revolution of 1830 (which replaced the Bourbon king, Charles X, with the Citizen King, Louis-Philippe) rise from their graves beside tombstones inscribed ‘They died for Liberty’. Around them they see the same rioting, turmoil and military suppression continuing. In August 1835, the very month that this lithograph was published, laws were passed prohibiting political caricature and ‘La Caricature’ was closed down.
