    • 4 Pages

Although her story is littered with the tragedy and brutality of oppression and war, the horrors she experienced are often combined with funny moments that seem impossible in her situation. The premise of humour may seem out of place in a graphic novel about a terrible time, the…

    traded off. First, the conflicting grandeur and inequity of Louis XVI’s Ancien Régime, then the tumultuous French Revolution, and finally the magnificently short lived rule of Napoleon. Ultimately, not only is David’s work inseparable from its historical context, he shaped his historical context in a way few other artists had done through his active participation in the French revolution.
