Experimental footage for a film that was never released, based on the French Revolution.

"Working out of a method for bringing to life and filming technique of finished works of fine art in animated films".

There is no actual animation as such, just moving the camera at different parts of paintings. The technique is similar to something Norshteyn would later teach in his classes (a lesson in how many paintings contain the germ of animation within them), which he would later write down in his book Snow on the Grass.
