Life Imitates Art

Or does it? This from The Daily Telegraph, Friday 17 February, Business pages. The sub-title reads: “Just history repeating? The Massacre of Chios, Delacroix’ painting of the slaughter of tens of thousands of Greeks by Ottoman troops during the Greek war of independence in 1822, which provoked international outrage.” So there. As if.

And this inspired piece of journalism owes a little something to (guess who?) Uncle Wikipedia, who says, coincidentally: “… the slaughter of tens of thousands of Greeks … by Ottoman troops during the Greek War of Independence in 1822 … provoked international outrage.”
