Dublin Core

Title

View of the Mound of Champ de la Reunion on the Festival That Was Celebrated in Honor of the Supreme Being

Description

In this watercolor of the Festival of the Supreme Being, we see a procession that includes a woman wearing a Phrygian cap paraded past a statue of Hercules holding two smaller statues of Liberty and Equality, towards a Liberty tree, atop the hill. In the foreground, a patriotic woman explains the meaning of the spectacle to her young son, an allegory of the didactic intent of the entire festival.
