Notes

Summary:
In 1814, when Ferdinand VII resumed the Spanish throne, Goya painted two pictures to commemorate Spanish resistance to French occupation. The first, entitled The Second of May, 1808, portrays the Spanish uprising against Napoleon's cavalry; the second, and more famous, Third of May, 1808 depicts the French reprisals. This painting condemns organized brutality in a way that stands alone in excellence. This scene of slaughter captures every detail of a group of gleeful hateful men destroying their fellow men. Nothing else in all of art equals the violence, the black terror of the moment, with those guns pointed at the group of unarmed victims. This is a difficult painting to look at for extended periods of time and may even cause nightmares.
