MANET: THE EXECUTION OF MAXIMILIAN -- PAINTING, POLITICS AND CENSORSHIP. Juliet Wilson-Bareau et al. National Gallery, London, 1992. Published in the U.S.A. in association with Princeton University Press. 128 pp. with 119 ills. (35 col.). 27 x 22 cm. LC 92-9919 ISBN 1857090012 In English.
Focusing on three monumental canvases by Edouard Manet (1832-1883) depicting the 1867 execution of Archduke Maximilian of Austria, the puppet emperor installed in Mexico by Napoleon III, this catalogue thoroughly examines the historical, artistic and political issues surrounding the controversial paintings through a presentation of documentary prints and photographs, additional works on political themes by Manet, and examples of Salon history painting of the time. Three scholarly essays include a chronicle of French intervention in Mexico; a detailed analysis of the innovative imagery and style of the Maximilian canvases; and a discussion of the status of history painting in the 1860s and the repression of artistic expression during the Second Empire.
