"Liberty Leading the People" (After Delacroix)
Liberty Leading the People is a painting by Eugène Delacroix commemorating the July Revolution of 1830, which toppled King Charles X of France. A woman personifying the concept and the goddess of Liberty leads the people forward over the bodies of the fallen, holding the flag of the French Revolution – the tricolour flag, which remains France's national flag – in one hand and brandishing a bayonetted musket with the other. Delacroix commented "If I can't fight for my country, at least I can paint for her", and painted himself as the figure on the left with the top hat. The figure of Liberty is also viewed as a symbol of France and the French Republic known as Marianne.
