In this short film, Dr Judith Jammers discusses how Delacroix combined political realism and Romantic fervour in order to create what has become the single most familiar image of Revolution. The film prompts students to think about the historical background, the topic of revolution and political propaganda and how these relate to form and style and Romanticism.
