"Memorable Day at Versailles, October 5, 1789"

This painted engraving illustrates the "glorious modern Amazons" returning from "their victory" accompanied by National Guardsmen, and holding poplar tree branches to illustrate their support for the Revolution. Observers shout "long live the Nation," which, in this rendering at least, these market women have come to embody.
