The harsh realities of human social hierarchy are laid bare in this satirical piece by William Holbrook Beard, where mice and rabbits are shown supplicating themselves to a royal predator. The king may judge disputes or bestow favors, but, at the end of the day, his subjects are his food, and his only purpose in maintaining them is to ensure that he has plenty to eat for later. An American painter, Beard rubbed elbows with some of the most celebrated figures of the Hudson River School, but eschewed landscape art in favor of visual social commentary, using animals to poke fun at the less flattering aspects of human nature.
