Assassination of J. P. Marat

Dublin Core

Title

Assassination of J. P. Marat

Description

An arrested Corday is hustled out of the door, while the inquest begins. The expired Marat, ghastly pale, looks much more realistic than in the David rendition of his death. Also, the bath in the shape of a boot, which differs from most images, is apparently accurate.

Creator

Claude-Louis Desrais (designer)
Jacques Marchand (engraver)
