"Botzaris Surprising the Turkish Camp" (After Delacriox)
Markos Botsaris c.1788-1823, was a Greek patriot. Exiled from his native Epirus in 1803, he joined Ali Pasha in 1820 and later was prominent in the Greek War of Independence, notably in the defense of Mesolóngion (1822-23) and at Karpenísion, where he defeated the Turks with a handful of men but died in battle.
This was a very free adaptation of Delacroix' original. The night sky was Santa Barbara with the Hale-Bopp comet streaking across the sky.
