Manet and the Execution of Maximilian


Combining art with social studies, this online exhibition from the Museum of Modern Art focuses on five works by the French artist Manet depicting the execution of Emperor Maximilian of Mexico. A fascinating and in-depth look at one artist's reaction to a political event that was unfolding in his lifetime, the exhibit takes the form of a timeline that juxtaposes Manet's works with contemporary newspaper accounts of the execution and other primary source materials.
