Français : Louis-Michel Lepeletier de Saint-Fargeau (1760-1793), député à la Convention, vote la mort du roi, et est assassiné la veille de son exécution (20 janvier 1793). Considéré comme un martyr, il devient une icône de la Révolution de ce fait.English: Louis-Michel le Peletier, marquis de Saint-Fargeau (1760-1793), deputy at the "Convention Nationale", he voted in favor of the death of the king Louis XVI (361 pro, 360 contra). On 20 January 1793, the eve of the king's execution, Le Peletier was assassinated. He was therefore considered martyr, and became iconic for the Revolution.

Jean-François Garneray (1755-1837) was a French painter known for his marine and naval scenes. He was born in Paris and trained under the renowned marine painter Joseph Vernet. Garneray's works often depicted naval battles, ships and seascapes with great detail and realism. Garneray's career was closely linked to the French Navy, as he served as a naval artist and travelled extensively on board various ships, including those involved in the Napoleonic Wars. His first-hand experience at sea lent authenticity to his depictions of maritime life and naval engagements. In addition to his marine scenes, Garneray also painted portraits and landscapes.
