Dublin Core

Title

Inside a Revolutionary Committee during the Reign of Terror

Description

The extremely respectful view of sans–culotte militancy is evident in this image, engraved by the 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.

Creator

Pierre-Gabriel Berthault (engraver)
