Camille Desmoulins

This piece of art won Patron's Mention award in the art exhibit Revolutionary

Art: Camille Desmoulins by Artist Muriel Areno
Camille Desmoulins (1760-1794) was a young and handsome idealist who was devoted to the revolution as well as to his wife and baby son. Ultimately, like most of the engineers of the Revolution, he lost his life on the guillotine. In 1789, he said: "From one end of the country to the other, a universal cry is heard, everyone wants to be free." I kept the portrait loose and rough as befits the subject. The burning Bastille prison is seen in the background, as it has become a symbol of the French Revolution.
