Le Prince Lambesc aux Tuilleries – View of Prince Lambesc and the Royal Cavalry at the Tuilleries gardens trying to repress the first revolutionary demonstrations on July 12th, 1789. Popular revolt had broken out in Paris following the news of Louis XVI’s dismissal of the Finance Minister, Jacques Necker. The print demonstrates the rupture of a calm, polite space by contrasting the architectural features of the park with the violence of the event. Charles Eugene of lorraine, Prince of Lambesc (1751-1825) served as an officer in the French and Habsburg armies during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars.
