King Louis XVIII died in 1824. Charles X ascended the throne and restored the tradition of the Old Regime - choosing to be crowned in Reims in 1825. With the Ordinances of Saint-Cloud (1830), he abolished freedom of the press and changed the electoral law, sparking a revolution: on 27,28 and 29 July 1830, the population of Paris rose in revolt. These are the "three glorious days". Charles X abdicates in favour of his grandson, the Comte de Chambord. In his Memoirs, Hector Berlioz describes with gusto the intoxication of these historic moments: 'I shall never forget the appearance of Paris in those glorious days; the fanatical bravery of the boys, the enthusiasm of the men, the feverish enthusiasm of the girls of the street, the dejected resignation of the Swiss and of the royal guards, the peculiar pride of the workers in being, as they said, masters of the city and touching nothing. ' With Liberty leading the people to the barricades, Eugène Delacroix wished to magnify this upsurge and to emerge as a modern artist committed to the spirit of the age. He chooses 28 July, the second of the 'three glorious days', when the uprising takes a decisive turn. At that time, the barricade was one of the most characteristic symbols of revolutions: nearly four thousand were erected in Paris at the height of the revolt. In Delacroix's painting, a young woman wearing a republican cap, raising the tricolour in her right hand and a rifle in her left, drags a group of insurgents to the top of the barricade. At its foot are the bodies of the dead. In the background looms one of Notre Dame's towers, on which the national flag flies. Amid the gunpowder smoke, her breast bared, the woman is the image and personification of Liberty. The boy beside her, in a student black velvet beret, brandishing pistols, is the embodiment of rebellious youth; thirty years later, under the name of Gavroche, he would be immortalised by Victor Hugo in his novel Les Misérables.

Liberty Leading the People to the Barricades was accepted by the Salon jury in 1831 and was exhibited on its opening day, May 1.
