Forming part of a complex media culture, Gillray’s caustic images of the French Revolution were appropriated on both sides of the Channel. Richard Taws reveals the Revolution’s role in spurring on further technological transformations, fuelled by a desire to spread revolutionary ideals over great distance at high speed. He also faces the conundrum at the heart of this - how to justify universal rights internationally, while also profiting from an economy of slavery?
