Although this an abstract composition, I saw a rich brocade and lace fabric with intricate embroidery. I shifted the hue to red. The top half of the image is still somewhat haute couture but the lower area of chaotic lines and exploding shapes suggested a scenario far removed from pomp and grandeur. I was looking for a title that would explain the duality of privilege and violence. Someone came immediately to mind. The title, October 16, 1793, is the date of Marie Antoinette's execution.
