Speech Falls Silent

Pierre-Narcisse Guerin, The Return of Marcus Sextus, Oil on canvas, 217 x 243 cm, 1799 (source)

"The characters in a tragedy, the places; the air one breathes-these are sometimes more fascinating than the tragedy itself, the moments preceding tragedy and those that follow it, when the action is firm and speech falls silent." - Michelangelo Antonioni
