Max T-shirts…

I got a couple of T-shirts printed, slightly too late for 14 July, but they'll do for Thermidor (when I'm moving back to my hometown in Yorkshire)… Having recently stumbled on pics of the exquisite Deseine terracotta bust of Max, I realised that I'd been carrying a small torch for some 35 years, since I was a sixth-former… A guilty pleasure. I realised I needed to renew our acquaintance… (And yes, that's an Adam and the Ants lyrics joke on the second design, because Max dresses as if he's been in a New Romantic music video from the days of my youth.) So, I'm happy to join this community.
Max t-shirt designs…Collapse )

fan art :3

Hello how are you ? (I'm fine) I'm new to this group and that's why I would like to contribute some fanart Strangers ehehe.
MARAT X CORDAY


   
Both of terracotta busts attributed to Joseph Shinard (1756-1813).
The first is in a private collection Jacquemart-André in Paris.

The second put up for auction site Sothebys.


I am very happy that her sculptures are preserved, even though they are not attributed to 100%!

portraits of Claire Lacombe (Red Rose)

dear colleagues!

This portrait of Claire Lacombe (4/08/1765 - after 1798), "enragé", creator of Republican Revolutionary Club, appeared on the network about 3 years ago.

It is usually accompanied by a signature "Ducare." But we not found a miniaturist with that name.
Perhaps it is a Ducreux (26/06/1735 – 24/07/1802), which could really portray Claire in 1792, when she acquired more fame after taking part in the revolt on 10 August.

And just recently found another portrait

(source.)

Undoubtedly that both portraits is the same model.
We assume that the second portrait could have been written by Jacques-Louis David, as he and Claire at a time, in August 1794 to September 1795, were in the house of detention of the Luxembourg Palace.

Does anyone possesses information more accurate?

Saint-Just Bio

I'm new and so forth but I did a research on Saint-Just a few years ago back when www.saint-just.net was still up. Unfortunately the internet archive of the page also no longer exists. There was one biography of Saint-Just that was part of a larger work that offered short bios on a few of the principle members of the Terror. In Saint-Just's section there was a very florid description of him, physically. I can't seem to find the original book and so I haven't been able to find the quote. Anyone know which book this is and, even better, the quote, is? Thanks.

Marat biographies

I posted a while ago a similar post where I asked about Saint-Just biographies that were worth reading. Now I would like to ask you about any Marat biographies that are good and worth reading, since I would like to start reading about the man and I don't really know where to start (I can speak english and spanish, and I also have a basic french level).

Happy Bastille Day!

The intrawebs are full of fun stuff lately... This is so very, very, very bad, it's actually sort of good. Enjoy! :)

So cool!

I thought some of you on the comm might enjoy this. See if you can spot the Revolution! Unfortunately there are no dates attached.

It's past midnight in France...

...but it's still June 20th in certain part of the world! Which makes today the anniversary of the Tennis Court Oath, when the members of the Third Estate (except that lone man who refused, but you know...) vowed not to disband until France had a constitution.

I visited the room in which the Tennis Court Oath took place this April.

In order to commemorate the occasion, here are some of the photos I tookCollapse )
