The image illustrates the moment when the central figure, Nanon, is about to make the proclamation. Her strong stance and determined face make her the center of the crowd’s attention. Instead of faithfully following Madame Pantalon’s satire, Sloan reads author De Kock against the grain to illuminate the real independence of this “Independent.”
