FRANCK BONNET USS CONSTITUTION Justice on land is often worse than at sea (T.1), Glénat 2020 Original plate n° 54. Signed. India ink on paper 36.3 × 51 cm (14.29 × 20.08 in.) This is the last plate of the first album of my maritime series USS Constitution, the one on which it closes. For me, my last plates have always been real openings to the following volumes, hence the choice to make them with little narration, closer to the illustration, with more freedom. This is my pleasure plate in which I honor one of the key "characters" of this series, the frigate. In this final page, I get away from the constraints of the narrative, I try to bring the sea and the ship to life in black and white, with a perspective that is in line with that of the great marine painters Geoff Hunt and John Michael Groves. It's an often unique plate in my albums, one that is generally harder to part with than others. Franck Bonnet
