'A Momentous Question!', 1883. Artist: Joseph Swain

'A Momentous Question!', 1883. Czar Alexander III of Russia is majestic following his coronation. On one side is the representative of Constitutional Liberty and, on the other, Despotism. Whilst his coronation had been complete with pomp and celebration, he had not used the occasion to promise any constitutional reform. From Punch, or the London Charivari, June 2, 1883.
