Description
Depiction of a group of men and women, whose costumes may represent various geographical regions, dancing around a liberty tree topped by a Phrygian cap with a cockade, a revolutionary symbol in France beginning in the 1790s. A man in the background of the group wears a similar cap, as does the man dancing alone at right, whose long trousers identify him as a member of the sans-culottes, the working-class supporters of the revolution. In the background is a castle with cannons protruding from its battlements; another cannon and a soldier appear at ground level. Charging cavalrymen, brandishing their sabers, are visible behind the dancers.
