Description

A man wearing what might be a butcher’s outfit is rolling up his sleeve in the foreground, ready to use his knife on a man held down by two others as the revolt is raging around them.
On 1 Prairial Year III—or May 20, 1795—took place a popular revolt which failed to bring back to power a government controlled by the Mountain. The insurgents swept into the Convention, killing Deputy Féraud and brandishing his head on a pike.
The caption reads in the original French: 1er Prairial An 3.
