During the course of the 19th century, however, French collectors and museums assembled substantial holdings of works by such Spanish masters as Velá zquez, El Greco, Zurbará n, Murillo, and Goya. At the same time, French writers and artists - among them Delacroix, Gé ricault, Courbet, Millet, Bonnat, Degas, and especially, Manet - came to understand, appreciate, and emulate Spanish painting of the Golden Age. Illustrated with 349 black and white and 380 color photographs and reproductions, this book vividly demonstrates how direct contact with Spanish painting led to the taste for Realism in the 1860s, and provided a foundation for modern art. Also included in this volume are works by American artists like Whistler, Cassatt, Eakins, Chase, and Sargent that clearly reflect the pervasive influence of and taste for Spanish painting. In 1804, at the dawn of the French Empire, there were no more than a handful of Spanish paintings in public collections in France.

|Manet and the Execution of Maximilian The Museum of Modern Art Elderfield J. |
As news of the execution reached Paris, Manet reacted with a group of works synthesizing the information as it came to him and drawing heavily on an earlier painting inspired by violent political events, Goya' s The Third of May. In addition to analyzing and documenting the creation of these works, John Elderfield, in his text, clarifies their historical importance in the context of modern art, and in so doing, offers a capsular history of the place of current events in art. But Napoleon soon withdrew, abandoning Maximilian to his fate at the hands of a resurgent Mexican army. The execution of Emperor Maximilian of Mexico, in 1867, was the subject of a quartet of paintings by the French Impressionist and early Modernist Edouard Manet. These works are rarely shown together, and in fact cannot be seen in their entirety, since one of them exists only in fragments, but the three intact paintings and the surviving elements of the fourth are reproduced in this publication, and will be shown at The Museum of Modern Art' s exhibition in the fall of 2006. Maximilian' s death was an event of great public interest in France, in part because French policies shared the responsibility for it. A European aristocrat of the Hapsburg family, Maximilian had been installed in 1864 after a trio of European powers, led by Napoleon III of France, mounted an invasion of Mexico to reclaim debts upon which the Mexican government had suspended payment.
