"In The Uprising, diagonal planes, moving in from opposite corners by means of sharply contrasted lights and darks, carve out a space filled with a mob, though but a few people can actually be seen. One dynamic figure in the foreground tersely carved in light and dark, with a forceful diagonal movement, repeated in the half-seen figure on the left, symbolizes the threatening mood of the mob." --Gardner's Art Through the Ages (1926) by Helen Gardner
