Liberty Guiding the People
This piece was painted in the year 1830, the same year that Charles X decided to revoke the gains of the revolution by abolishing the freedom of the press in France. This law brought on the provocation of an uprising of the people that lasted three days, called the "3 Glorieuses." The artist painted a woman holding up the French flag in the light and guiding the people as a tribute to this revolution. Today this work is kept and available for viewing in the Louvre Museum.

Monnaie de Paris

Today, the mint strikes circulation coins for France, as well as beautiful gold and silver commemorative coin programs that are each intricately designed works of art.
