dc.description Published in: L'Association Mensuelle, October 2,1834.
dc.description.abstract The illustration refers to brutal massacre by the National Guard killing 19 women, children, and elderly people in Rue Transnonain number 12 on 14 April 14 1834. It emphatically describes the suppression of the revolt by the "canuts", the silk weavers of Lyon. The killed man is most likely a Mr. Hué with his child lying under him. The woman has been identified as Madame Godefroy. A few days later, the print was exhibited in the shop windows of Aubert's editing house in Paris. Although the censor had approved publication, most of the prints were nevertheless confiscated by the Government (see Adhémar and Bechtel). Although Daumier refrained from accusing the Government directly and was reporting mere facts in this print, the King ordered the confiscation of the lithographic stone and had all copies of this lithograph available on the market tracked down and destroyed. The few existing copies are extremely rare and those without a centerfold are especially valuable.
