1.In the foreground a French monk sharpens his executioner's axe. In front of him are implements of torture, a statue of St. Anthony and a 'Plan pour un Monastere dans Black Friars a Londre'. With such items he is preparing to convert the British to Catholicism. Behind him is a grouping of French soldiers, representing such states as starvation and fanaticism. One better dressed soldier (perhaps an officer) roasts frogs on his sword and points to the flag behind him which contains the words, 'Vengeance et le Bon Bier et Bon Beuf de Angletere'. Behind them is an inn bearing the name on the sign, 'Soup Meagre a la Sabot Royal'. In the background women plough the fields while there husbands are forced to board a ship at the point of a lance.
2. This scene is set at the sign of William the Brave, Duke of Cumberland, who is mounted on a proud charger. On a table out of doors, a buttock of beef invites attention. The soldier has laid his sword across the batter, and the sailor has placed his pistols over a tankard of strong beer. The paper lying on the table is the celebrated national song " Rule Britannia". Published at the outbreak of a 7 year war with France. The scene is England, outside an inn: The Duke of Cumberland, allusion to the last time the French tried to invade England. A grenadier is painting the King of France, gallows in hand, sword in another.

 Each print depicts a different stage in the life of the fictional Tom Nero.

Finally, in The reward of cruelty, he receives what Hogarth warns is the inevitable fate of those who start down the path Nero has followed: his body is taken from the gallows after his execution as a murderer and is mutilated by surgeons in the anatomical theatre. wiki
