File:Mort Beaupuy.jpg


Français : Mort du général de Beaupuy 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.
