Robespierre 10 Thermidor—Exposition of 1877

Dublin Core

Title

Robespierre 10 Thermidor—Exposition of 1877

Description

This painting from 1877 shows in romantic style Robespierre dying in a large room, surrounded by soldiers and others. His shirt is bloodied and his left hand is on his chest; visible in the background is a tablet of the Declaration of Rights of Man and Citizen, suggesting that it was the cause for which Robespierre died. The image might be seen as a moment of secular apotheosis.
