The Roll Call of the Last Victims of the Terror
The Roll Call of the Last Victims of the Terror c1850 by French Painter Charles Louis Müller (1815 – 1892); known for his historical scenes, especially from the French Revolution and was part of the Romantic Movement.
This is a historical scene showing a large group of people inside a large building with a gate to the only entrance and exit of the building, that includes men, women and children, during the French Revolution and the Reign of Terror which lasted in France from 1793 to 17943.
It shows the roll call and the act of recording the names of the people by jailers of the people that were arrested and imprisoned during the revolution, as soldiers select and then take away the named individuals.
While many other people both standing and sitting, cowering in fear not knowing what fate awaits them during this Reign of Terror; as they watch their jailers removing from the prison those whose names have been called.
