Jan Matejko “Rejtan - upadek Polski” - “Rejtan - the Fall of Poland”
Tadeusz Rejtan was a deputy in the Sejm (parliament) of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in 1773, infamously known as the Partition Sejm (convened by the Russian Empire, Prussia and Austria in order to legalize their First Partition of Poland). On 21 April that year, Rejtan, in a dramatic gesture, is said to have bared his chest and laid himself down in a doorway, blocking the way with his own body in a dramatic attempt to stop the other members from leaving the chamber where the debate was being held (leaving of the chamber signified the end of the discussion, and the acceptance of the motion).
