Possibly after designs by Léopold Morice (1846-1919)
A key point in the history of the French revolution, is played out with great drama and astonishing attention to detail. with surprise, horror, celebration and vibrant colours all captured in one scene, this is truly a masterpiece of rolled paper work.
In 1879, The Morice foundry won a contract to supply the bronze plaques for the Place de la Republic in Paris. The present scene has close similarities with figures from this scene as can be seen here
'Monsieur Morice's work is all inspiration and [holds] a place in the first rank of French sculptors. His very personal art gives an experienced sensation that sometimes reaches the sublime. Besides talent, he also has a rare suppleness, for from the same chisel come grandly epic scenes as well as gracious and exquisite compositions.'
