In this exquisite work of art, Liberty is personified by an unafraid and daunting female figure, leading her countrymen to victory, bearing a bayoneted musket in one hand and the French flag, the Tricolore, in the other. Towering above a fleet of fallen soldiers, she is a shining pedestal of god-like symbolism and nationalist pride. The beautiful color work in every inch of this painting emphasized by the contrasting reds and cool blue tones is elevated by the intelligent shadow play, making this an in-depth statement and an everlasting synonym to the French national motto.
