Jean Paul Marat
Jean Paul Marat was a leader of the Cordeliers Club (a radical group in France) along with Georges Danton. He was assassinated in 1793 by a young Girondist named Charlotte Corday, who believed that his death would end the French Revolution. Like most of the people involved in the French Revolution, he was a huge follower of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, even adopting a disheveled and unbathed appearance specifically to "live simply and according to the precepts of [Rousseau]."
Marat was part of a planned line of statues, the Monumental Propaganda, commemorating various other French Revolutionary figures such as Maximilien de Robespierre, Georges Danton and François-Noël Babeuf, that were to be made shortly after the October Revolution in Russia. However, his statue was never completed.
