The Execution

of the Emperor Maximilian

1867:

Manet produced three oil paintings and a lithograph of the execution of the Emperor. This is the final version, in the first version the firing squad was dressed in Mexican costume. In later versions they are wearing what are virtually French Army uniforms. Manet made clear his political views, but he also was attempting to paint a large historical painting of the kind that would normally have appealed to the Salon jury.
