Inside a Revolutionary Committee during the Reign of Terror

Annotation

The extremely respectful view of sans–culotte militancy is evident in this image, engraved by the French Revolutionary sculptor Berthault and based on a painting by Fragonard, the son of the famous old regime painter. Imitating an old master’s interior scene, it shows a committee somberly meting out revolutionary justice.

Pierre-Gabriel Berthault (engraver), Claude Nicolas Malapeau (engraver), and Alexandre Fragonard (designer), “Inside a Revolutionary Committee during the Reign of Terror,” Liberty, Equality, Fraternity.
