Contemporary Images I The Plotters and their end
This image provides portraits of the conspirators and documents their fate. They are shown
as gentlemen- real men though clearly they are cast as brave outlaws full of plot and strength.
Their treatment is depicted as barbaric and the crowd is clearly captivated by shock and is not
jeering. The men sit up as they are drawn through the streets in defiance and we are again reminded
of the barbaric treatment as we are confronted with heads on pikes. The text is in German and
hints at an artist interested in depicting  the scene accurately. This is perhaps the most famous
image of the plot.
