A Place of Greater Safety by suburbanbeatnik A Place of Greater Safety by suburbanbeatnik
This was inspired by the Hilary Mantel novel, "A Place of Greater Safety," quite possibly the best novel about the French Revolution I have ever read. In this very sturm und drang piece, Robespierre signs the death warrant of his good friends Camille and Lucile Desmoulins, whose son was his godchild. As he does so, Saint-Just- the sinister blond in the upper left hand corner- looks on...

I did this in my last term at Art Center, and I've forgotten about it until now. It was painted with acrylics on Crescent illustration board.
