Read in May, 2011

Graphic novel about the political and theological climate around the French Revolution and Robespierre's assignment to David to paint a "Supreme Being."

I think I missed a lot of context.

The art is an appealing mix of Edward Sorel-like sketchiness and actual paintings photoshopped into backgrounds. The best part of the book, I found, had to do with the creation of art -- posing, sketching.
