self-portrait by Joseph Ducreux

Joseph Ducreux was a French painter active in the latter part of the 18th century — he was a portraitist in the court of Louis XVI and continued his career after the French Revolution. But Ducreux is increasingly remembered for his series of self-portraits that were surprisingly informal for the age in which they were painted. To contemporary eyes, they almost seem to have been painted for use in memes. (https://kottke.org/21/11/goofy-18th-century-self-portraits-by-joseph-ducreux)

The Last Public Execution by Guillotine

On the morning of 17 June 1939, a crowd gathered outside the doors of the Saint-Pierre prison, in the center of Versailles. They had come to watch the execution of Eugen Weidmann, a serial killer who had been convicted of multiple kidnappings and murders. After the execution of 1939, the government banned all public executions, and Weidmann went down in history as the last man in France to be guillotined publicly. However, the government did not do away with execution and the particularly violent method of carrying it out. Rather, guillotining was hidden away behind prison walls.
