The Welcoming of a Marquis in Hell

Annotation

Reflecting French Revolutionary sentiments, the image points out the destruction of the nobility, depicting the arrival in Hell of a "marquis" and several other "aristocrats," described in the legend as "conspirators" and "traitors."

“The Welcoming of a Marquis in Hell,” 1790, Liberty, Equality, Fraternity.
