The Wreckers. Richard Roussel Richard Roussel
This work made with acrylic is the main visual created for the book «Pirates» published by Mango and awarded the First Prize at the 30th Festival Mondial de l'Image d'Antibes Juan-les-Pins, 2003.
The topic is still controversial at present and historians including myself have also gone into a textbook case. I recently gave a lecture on pirates and privateers and, consequently, on all forms of piracy. I tried this out to show the dramatic side of this situation and avoid a scene of gratuitous violence. The effect is produced due to the reaction of visitors to each exhibition.

Sublime travail pour un hyper actif
Tu as une palette magnifique de possibilités et de style
Ton école de formation semble une fabuleuse idée.
C'est le retour à l'atelier de nos maitres qui est tout de même le fondamental de notre art.
