    Charlotte Corday, by Paul Jacques Aimé Baudry, posthumous (1860) Charlotte was a figure of the French Revolution. In 1793, she was executed under the guillotine for the assassination of Jacobin leader Jean-Paul Marat, who was in part responsible, through his role as a politician & journalist, for the more radical course the Revolution had taken. Under the Second Empire, Marat was seen as a revolutionary monster and Corday as a heroine of France, represented in the wall map.

I have a passion for the Neoclassicism era of painting, the way that David (who is so talented) displays this revolutionary writer as a martyr and a saint of the French revolution is remarkable you can almost feel the pain and outrage of Marat's untimely death.
