dc.description.abstract General Ney was a victim of a judicial murder in 1815, arranged by the House of Lords. He is seen here as a ghost rewriting the heading above the entrance to the Palais du Luxembourg. It is not yet clear how the word "Palais des Ass..." will end: either "Palais des Assassins" (murderers' palace) or "Palais des Assises" (Courthouse). A more recent interpretation of the print identifies the "ghost" not as Ney, but as Louis-Philippe, appearing in a shroud-like sheet recalling gothic tombs of this period, at the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Marshall Ney’s execution. en_US
