Manet's 'The Execution of Maximilian' in context
Thursday 13 March, 6pm to 7pm
Dr Jon Kear, Lecturer in History and Philosophy of Art at the University of Kent, looks at the representation of martyrdom and history painting, and how Manet's 'indifference' to certain conventions of history painting created problems for understanding the picture.
