Scenes from an Execution

Scenes from an ExecutionT199921416
Scenes from an Execution is one of Barker's most famous works. This modern classic tells of a woman's brush with history in the twilight of the Renaissance. Galactia is a talented by feisty female artist. The government of a male dominated Venice have chosen her to commemorate a recent battle victory in a vast painting. Galactia, however, rebels and portrays the true horrors of war. Can one woman's artistic integrity triumph over the power of the whole state?
