Abstract
  • British Museum No. 9201“Tierney (right), directed to the left., stands on a scaffold beside a guillotine, on which his right hand rests. He wears a round hat with a red feather and small tricolour cockade, a black cloak, below which appear his own striped stockings and half-boots. The blade of the guillotine is raised ; it drips blood, as does the aperture for the victim's neck. Behind, the heads of a crowd, all wearing the bonnet-rouge, look up at the scaffold.” (Source: George)
