I have just come across a set of 24 paintings depicting the Rebellion of Túpac Amaru II in Peru in 1781, and its brutal suppression by the Spanish colonial forces. Túpac himself was captured along with his wife and one of his sons and all three were tortured and executed, with their supporters massacred. According to Wikipedia, almost half of the leaders of the rebellion were female (32 out of 74), and were treated just as brutally as the men.

The paintings I have found are extraordinarily explicit and gory, in sharp contrast to the bright colourful folk painting style. Here are ten of them -- I have omitted the ones showing only males, and those including Túpac's young son. I can't quite make out the name of the painter on the images (something like "Huillca"), but they were painted recently rather than at the time of the events:

Those Spaniards knew how to discourage rebellion! And they appear to have had fun dealing with rebel women. The good old days, eh?

Looking at Wikipedia, I think the two main women shown being tortured and executed are Tomasa Tito Condemayta ("After being asphyxiated slowly with a hand-cranked metal garrote especially constructed for the occasion, she was hanged to ensure she was truly dead. Her impaled head was set up as a deterrent in Acos") and Tupac's wife Micaela Bastidas ("In front of her husband and her son Fernando Micaela fought against her executioners, until they finally subdued her and cut off her tongue. Her thin neck could not reach the winch, so they threw ties around her neck that pulled it from side to side to strangle her. They hit her with a club and ended up killing her with kicks in the stomach and breasts").

Comparing those descriptions with the paintings, Tomasa is the woman with the red skirt and Micaela the one with the white skirt in #3 to #6.

Amazingly brutal pictures, thank you for sharing.. reminds me of Diego Rivera, some of whose murals feature conquistadors enslaving and torturing Aztecs..

Thanks, @montycrusto. I have now figured out the artist: it is Antonio Huillca Huallpa, born 1942. There are a few more images in the set than the 24 I had found originally, of which the below is the most relevant:

Here is a Youtube video using these paintings to tell the story of rhe rebellion (for those who can read Spanish, which doesn't include me):
