The Massacre of the Soldiers of the Guard.
A double scene; four executioners, two of them brandishing scimitars above their heads, fall upon a group of soldiers, all in armour and pointed bascinets, striking them to the ground; to the right, a hillside covered with grass and flowers, and a conventionalized tree.
