Manipulatrice - colored pencil on paper

Artwork made as requested from a friend, who had in mind “Catherine de’ Medici doing something violent”. Because I’m not a fan of gratuitous violence, I tried to find a good context. After some research, I decided to do something related to St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre, and it ended up being more specifically about king Charles IX, 22 at the time, not actually having powers, because who really ruled was his mother, Catherine de’ Medici, which was certainly decisive to the episode’s bloody outcome.
