The revolt of Cairo
Pencil on paper, laid on board, signed and dated Juin 1822, after the painting by Girodet –Tryoson.
This scene is taken from the Egyptian rebellion against the French occupation and shows a Mameluk defending a young Turkish noble who has been severely wounded. The French army surrounded the rebels at the Great Mosque and brutally suppressed the uprising.
