The Caladesi Chapter, DAR, was privileged to have at their annual luncheon meeting Dr. Warren Roberts, Professor of History at State University of New York at Albany. Dr. Roberts' topic was related to the battle of Saratoga and its implications for the French Revolution. He is the author of Jacques-Louis David and Jean-Louis Prieur, Revolutionary Artists - The Public, Populace, and Images of the French Revolution. In his book, Dr. Roberts offers a comparative study of Jacques-Louis David, the renowned artist of the French Revolution, and Jean-Louis Prieur, a little-known illustrator, tracking each of their political careers and providing insight into the relationship between the arts and the politics of the French Revolution.
Members of the Sons of the American Revolution were also in attendance.
