dc.description.abstract Louis-Philippe and Talleyrand are kneeling in front of a cross upon which "Freedom" is crucified. Above their head one can see a sign with the dates of the "Trois Glorieuses", the Revolutionary days of July 27, 28, 29, 1830. Louis-Philippe wears the cowl of a mendicant friar (in fact he once was a Jacobite), while Talleyrand wears a Jacobite hat showing the insignia of Napoleon, as well as a devil's hoof and horns. The King holds a rosary made of coins while Talleyrand wears a collection of symbols of the Bourbon crown, the Pope's mitre, the Napoleonic eagle, the Fleur de Lys of Charles X, and a pear representing Louis-Philippe. The open book in front of the King reads, "Charity". The crucifix rests upon a locked cashbox. The cat is the symbol of deceit and treachery. en_US
