Popular Prints from the French Revolution

This two-part exhibition examined popular prints from the French Revolutionary period (approximately 1789-93), highlighting how such prints were used, sold, and displayed and exploring the sources for their imagery in popular culture. Forty-four never-before exhibited prints from the Walters' collection were grouped into thematic sections. The installation outlined the chronological course of the Revolution and also demonstrated how prints were used both to communicate news and events and to disseminate political opinions. A timeline of key events from the Revolution was included in the gallery.
