The death of Marat painting

Painted in 1793 by Jacques Louis David of his friend and publisher Marat during the French Revolution.  He was a fiery orator and was assassinated in his bathtub (he had a serious skin condition) where he soaked for hours on end, by a young royalist whom he had agreed to meet in his apt.  This is the image I took for the broken child which represents all the children massacred in schools.
