  People lead Louis as pig.jpg - "Oh! The damned animal annoys me to the point of rage. He's so fat, so unsalable that I return from the market knowing not what to do with him." This water color caricature shows the great unpopularity of the king following his attempted flight from France in June 1791. Here, as a pig, he is under the control of a peasant dressed in the clothing of the Third Estate. After the overthrow of the monarchy in August 1792, many in France did not know what to do with the king, as this peasant is saying.
