Taking inspiration from 'The Secret History', the 1992 debut novel by Mississippi-born writer Donna Tartt , I made this new painting.

Entitled 'The secret History'
Oil and acrylic on wood

The Secret History is set at a fictional college and concerns a close-knit group of six students and their professor of classics. The students embark upon a secretive plan to stage a bacchanal. The narrator reflects on a variety of circumstances that lead ultimately to murder within the group.
