Français : Le général de Beaupuy fut blessé à Château-Gontier.Octobre 93, les troupes vendéennes remontent vers Granville, s'emparant de Château-Gonthier. En tombant, le général républicain Beaupuy aurait lancé : « Je n’ai pu vaincre pour la République, je meurs pour elle. » Le Tableau oppose la figure mourant de Dupuy au meneur vendéen triomphant.
English: In October 1793, the Vendean troops crossed the Loire river to reach Granville, storming into Château-Gonthier on their way. As he died, republican General Beaupuy is said to have cried out : « I couldn't conquer for the Republic, I shall die for her; » The drooping figure of the dying general offers a dramatic contrast with the victorious figure of the saber-wielding enemy.

This is a faithful photographic reproduction of a two-dimensional, public domain work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain for the following reason:
Public domain

The author died in 1919, so this work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 95 years or less.

Dialog-warning.svg You must also include a United States public domain tag to indicate why this work is in the public domain in the United States. Note that Mexico has a term of 100 years and does not implement the rule of the shorter term, so this image may not be in the public domain in Mexico. Côte d'Ivoire has a general copyright term of 99 years, but it does implement the rule of the shorter term.
The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain".
This photographic reproduction is therefore also considered to be in the public domain in the United States. In other jurisdictions, re-use of this content may be restricted; see Reuse of PD-Art photographs for details.
