Photo Details

Cartoon shows Catherine II horrified at the visions that beset her at the moment of death; a cloud entering at left depicts the many victims of her wrath; a skeleton, Death, stands behind her ready to plunge his spear and send her cloven-hoofed spirit into the hands of two grinning demons waiting in the flames of hell; a frightened Charles Fox witnesses the visions from a portrait on the wall behind her.
