Cabinet of Madame Tussaud

Barbara Campbell

"Madame Tussaud learnt her skills of wax modelling during the French Revolution. The Terror provided her with models more often dead than alive. The story of Madame Tussaud is woven around the great portrait machine of the revolution - the guillotine. Descriptions of its awesome efficiency and her gruesome task float over images of pastoral serenity."1
