Tarring and feathering of official:

21 | 2 Tarring and feathering of official The Boston Tea Party was only one of many angry confrontations between British officials and Boston patriots. On January 27, 1774, an angry crowd seized a British customs collector and then tarred and feathered him. This French engraving commemorates the defiant and provocative action.

Signing of Declaration of Independence:

21 | 3 Signing of Declaration of Independence This famous painting, The Signing of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1770, by John Trumbull (American, 1756-1843) shows the dignity and determination of America's revolutionary leaders. An extraordinarily talented group, they succeeded in rallying popular support without losing power to more radical forces in the process.

David, Tennis Court Oath:

21 | 4 David, Tennis Court Oath This painting The Oath of the Tennis Court, based on an unfinished work by the most celebrated artist of both the French Revolution and the Napoleonic era--Jacques-Louis David (1748-1825)--enthusiastically celebrates the revolutionary rapture of June 20, 1789. Locked out of their assembly hall at Versailles and joined by some sympathetic priests, the delegates of the third estate have moved to an indoor tennis court and are swearing never to disband until they have written a new constitution and put France on a firm foundation.

Storming the Bastille:

21 | 5 Storm i ng the Bastille This representation of the storming of the Bastille by an untrained contemporary artist--a local baker who took part--shows civilians and members of the Paris militia, the "conquerors of the Bastille," attacking this medieval fortress-prison. This successful action had enormous practical and symbolic significance, and July 14 has long been France's most important national holiday.

Parisian women march on Versailles:

21 | 6 Parisian women march on Versailles When the market women of Paris marched to Versailles and forced the royal family to return to Paris with them, they altered the course of the French Revolution. In this drawing the women are armed with pikes and swords and drag a cannon. Only the woman on the far left is clearly middle class, and she is pictured hesitating or turning away from the resolute actions of the poor women around her.

Napoleon's Coronation:

21 | 12 Napoleon's Coronation In this detail from the grandiose painting of the Coronation of Napoleon, 1804, Jacques-Louis David (leading painter of the French Revolution and Napoleonic era, 1748-1825) depicts Napoleon preparing to crown his beautiful wife, Josephine, in an elaborate ceremony in Notre-Dame Cathedral. Napoleon, the ultimate upstart, also crowned himself. Pope Pius VII, seated glumly behind the emperor, is reduced to being a spectator.
