Both the garden style called ‘sentimental’, and the French Revolution, grew from Rousseau. The garden trellis, and the guillotine, are alike entwined with the honeysuckle of the new ‘sensibility’.

— Ian Hamilton Finlay & Gary Hincks, 1987

The Guillotine was in use in France as it’s official form of capitol punishment until 1977.
