14 July, the French National Day, is commonly called Bastille Day in English. This painting by cubist artist Roger de la Fresnaye (1885-1925) was done in 1914. The de la Fresnayes were an aristocratic family and Roger studied at several art academies including the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He contracted tuberculosis in WWI and his health rapidly declined afterwards. He painted infrequently from 1918 until his death in 1925.
