Pencil holder Delcaroix "Liberty"

"I have undertaken a modern subject, a barricade, and if I have not conquered for the Country, at least I will paint for It", Eugène Delacroix, October 18, 1830

Everything in this picture exalts the momentum of the revolutionary days of July 1830 which overthrew the liberticidal king Charles X to put in his place Louis Philippe, Duke of Orleans: the pyramidal plan of the composition, forming a pedestal littered with corpses to an allegory of the Victory with bare breasts; the Phrygian cap of the young woman - a tribute to the Revolution of 1789 - which drives behind the rebellious crowd; the blue, white, red flag, symbol of struggle, which unfolds like a flame.
