JEAN MOULIN - HERO OF THE RESISTANCE?


Jean Moulin was appointed by General de Gaulle to unite the very fragmented resistance movements operating in France during the Nazi occupation. 
His mission was successful, but he was betrayed, captured by the Germans and tortured to death.
Many contemporary historians have questioned some of the facts.
This watercolour portrait was a commission painted from a famous photograph.
