Notes

Summary:
Delacroix was not actively involved in the three days of July 1830, known as the Trois Glorieuses, which saw out the autocracy of Charles X and brought in Louis-Philippe's parlementary monarchy. But liberal and romantic as he was, he was keen to celebrate the 28 July, when Parisians took up arms in the vain hope of restoring the Republic. The allegorical figure of Liberty waves the tricolour flag and storms the corpse-ridden barricades with a young combatant at her side. Realism and epic vision work together. Reviled by conservatives, the work was bought by Louis-Philippe at the 1831 Salon. Soon after, it was hidden for fear of inciting public unrest.
