Americans of the Decadence is a contemporary interpretation to scale (hand-embroidered painting 15′ 6″ x 25′ 4″) of the painting The Romans of the Decadence (French: Les Romains de la Décadence), a painting by the French artist Thomas Couture, first exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1847, a year before the 1848 Revolution which toppled the July Monarchy. It now belongs to the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. I have begun early sketch-production of this second artwork, and will be in full production beginning in 2025, with a completion goal of 2029. In 2029-2030 I will self-exhibit the work across multiple cities in the the US under the title "American Decadence Tour" and then ultimately permanently house the artwork for open public viewing in Austin Texas.
