Sur la représentation de la République en 1848 (1ère partie)

Abstracts

About the Republic's representation in 1848 (1st part) The representation of the Republic is both a debate of opinion and a collection of images. In the shape -feminine- and in the content -Republic- of these representations there is enough unity to justify a general examination. Parallel to the influence of the ideology on iconology, we have to consider the part of the image. The studies published for the "Bicentennaire" in 1989 enable us to bring a few explanations. The corpus of the official emblems begins during the revolutionary period, as shown by the example of the phrygian cap. The Republic has borrowed it from Liberty to apporopriate it. However the Republic of 1848 has abandonned the phrygian cap for a crown of sunbeams which has a more universal signification. In the same concern for political circumspections, the Republic of Cavaignac re-established the effigy of the First Consul on the legion of honour medal. The corpus of rhe city halls busts also reveals that political teachings through the settings go back to the time of the Revolution and therefore have to be studied consequently.
