#amreading: p. 266, THE ROMANOVS, 1613-1918

  • Everything is turned upside down at once . . . It is impossible for me to enumerate all the madness . . .  in a country that had become a plaything for the insane . . .  the army wastes all its time on the parade ground . . .  Power is unlimited and exercised perversely. You can judge how I am suffering.

— Alexander, grandson of Catherine the Great, about his own father, Paul, Emperor of Russia from 1796 (when Catherine died) to 1801

Edvard Munch: A Face in the Crowd

Last year, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art had an exhibit on Edvard Munch.

His portraits show faces erased of individual characteristics. THOSE PEOPLE ARE US.
