Che Guevara

Posted in Communism, Famous news stories, Heroes and Heroines, Historical articles, History, Politics, Revolution on Sunday, 22 November 2015

This stylised poster-like image of Che Guevara is a powerful portrait of one of the world’s most famous Freedom Fighters who soared to fame during the Cuban Revolution, and whose Marxist ideas often seemed less potent than his iconic face, which has come to symbolise rebellion and the counter-cultural fervour of youth the world over.

Lawrence of Arabia

The legend of Lawrence of Arabia has as much to with his appearance as with his remarkable political gifts and passion for the Arab world. We see in this picture a portrait of the serious and curiously wary T E Lawrence, whose fine intelligence and charisma seem to reside in his piercing blue eyes.

Marie Antoinette approaching the guillotine

Posted in Bravery, Famous crimes, Historical articles, History, Law, Revolution, Royalty on Thursday, 19 November 2015

This unusual picture of Marie Antoinette approaching the guillotine in a shroud-like robe is a stark image of the fall of the Bourbon Queen-Consort of France, whose lofty disdain for the Parisian poor has been immortalised in her apocryphal remark, “Let them eat cake”; she might have made it, even if she did not, and in this picture there is a bleak atmosphere of Nemesis hanging over the scene of her impending execution.

Lavoisier on the way to his execution

Posted in Discoveries, Famous crimes, Historical articles, History, Politics, Revolution, Science on Thursday, 19 November 2015

One of the most undeserving victims of the Terror during the French Revolution was the scientific genius named Antoine Lavoisier. The nobleman and pioneering chemist is seen here in this crowded and atmospheric picture, standing on the tumbrel with the dais of death in the background, waiting to meet his unjust fate at the Guillotine.
