A Grand Historical Painting, by Giraud, 15 1/2 feet high, and 13 1/2 feet wide. Marcel, Provost of Paris, saves from the fury of the revolted Parisians, the Dauphin CHARLES, Duke of Normandy, and regent of France, during the captivity of King John, his father. . . . The following historical notice of this event is extracted from the "Chroniques Francaises." "Driven to despair by the excesses which were committed by the troops of the King of Navarre, and the free companies in the environs of the city, the Parisians assembled in arms, the beginning of February, 1358, and led by Marcel, forced their way even into the bed-chamber of the Duke. There, Marcel . . . exclaimed, 'Sire, Duke, be not alarmed, but we have something to do here.'" "Advance, Bonnets Rouges! forward, on, on." Then, as a sign of protection, he places on the head of the Duke . . . his own cap of red and blue. . . . Then his followers, having drawn their swords, rushed upon the Lord Jehan de Conflans, Mareschal of Champagne, whom they slew near the bed of the Duke, whose robe was stained with his blood. Others rushed after the Lord Robert de Clermont, Mareschal of Normandy, whom they also slew in an adjoining chamber, where he had taken refuge in endeavoring to save himself. . . . [Pp. 4-5.]
