Unframed, quality fine art print of subject analogous with Lobster Thermidor.

The connection between lobsters & French Revolutionary tumbrels is not an everyday juxtaposition.
According to Larousse Gastronomique, the name of the famous shellfish recipe was likely coined in 1894 by a famous French chef, his restaurant close to the Comédie Française where the play 'Thermidor' about the revolution was playing. 

During the French Revolution, the revolutionaries changed from the Gregorian to a new calendar shorn of religious and royalist influence. 'Thermidor', from the Greek 'thermon' (summer heat), covered 'mid July - mid August. 10 Thermidor became famous as the date Robespierre was taken to the guillotine. 
That lobster thermidor, one of the most extravagant items on any menu, should be named for the butchery of an egalitarian mob is a neat Gallic quirk.

Printed using extremely fine, pigment-based archival ink, giving maximum possible vibrancy, clarity, and depth of image.
