After the February Revolution and like a week after the abdication of king Louis-Philippe, this sheet by Daumier was published in the satirical magazine "Le Charivari". It shows the mob storming the throne room in the Tuileries Palace, mocking the monarchy. A boy from the street sits on the throne and shouts "Oh my god! .. how deep can you sink". [CB].
