Description Charles Dumouriez, one of France’s most successful military commanders, turned on the
revolutionary government in March 1793, but was soon forced to flee to Britain,
where he would remain until his death in 1823. Gillray shows him being offered the
decapitated head of the Prime Minister, William Pitt, by Charles James Fox, leader
of the opposition Whigs; a crown, by Fox’s Whig colleague Richard Brinsley Sheridan;
while to the extreme left the dissenting minister Joseph Priestley offers Dumouriez
a bishop’s mitre. The dishes are decorated with frogs.
