viva la liberte!
eugene delacroix painted 'liberty leading the people' in 1830. it is amazing. in 1818, theodore gericault, at the young age of 27 years, painted 'raft of the medusa.' then, in 1985 along comes 'rum sodomy and the lash', one of the great records from the english/irish group 'the pogues.' all of these images seem to have been born from the same spirit.
