"The Death of Robespierre"
This engraving, based on a color portrait by Beys, depicts the death of Robespierre on the guillotine. The executioners wear not the traditional hangmans hood but red bonnets representing liberty. This judgment notes Robespierres failure to the Revolution itself. Contemporaries emphasized that Robespierres punishment was just because it was the same to which "he had condemned so many thousands of innocent victims."
