13 January 1991
through an artist’s eyes


The photo.

Artist Ruta Brazis-Velasco:
“Lithuanians day of commemoration, January 13, 1991 Television tower victims. The tower incident where 14 people were shot dead or crushed by Soviet tanks that stormed the parliament and TV tower. Thousands of unarmed people had confronted Soviet troops while Lithuania was battling to regain its independence.

This painting was done as an exercise in college of a trauma painting, done in oil with a pallet knife in 5 minutes. I used a Magazine type book that documented the truth.”
