"I have tasted command"
30 x 20 inch (w x h)
Pen and Marker on Paper

During the year without a summer and the subsequent two to three years of disease, famine, upheaval and, to some extent, societal and cultural rehabilitation, the leaders of the effected countries behaved with varying degrees of understanding and thoughtfulness towards their starving and dying people.
In Sweden, Hedwig Elisabeth Charlotte of Holstein-Gottorp, the Queen Consort, actively sought to help her people, leading vigils to the church and handing out morsels of bread. Meanwhile, the British rule in India was turning a blind eye to the outbreak of cholera, only taking action when it effected the British population in India, and the Irish suffered from Typhus as they were forced to live in close quarters with one another because all their income was going towards ever increasing food costs due to crop failure and mismanagement under the rule of Mad Kind George III. Baroness de Krüdener, an extraordinary Livonian author, socialite and "Lady of the Holy Alliance", single-handedly attempted to feed the famished and disease ridden masses of France, Switzerland and Germany, and sells her previous life's clothes and jewels, raising 30,000 Francs to turn a small house above the banks of the Rhine, called Hoernlein, into a refugee camp, where night and day she would feed the starving throngs. In America, as with much of the world, religious fervor and fear, and to some extent, flat-out denial of the climate changes was the order of the day, and the people in charge often acted with hubris and callousness to their people.
