Label copy
Daumier's lithograph satirically depicts a conference that took place in London in 1832 during which the freedom of Poland was severely restricted before being altogether abrogated three years later. The dead woman on the floor represents the unfortunate Poland surrounded by animals in military garb who probably represent the nations responsible for her "death."
