Om Third of May 1808
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Third of May 1808 (also known as El tres de mayo de 1808 en Madrid, or Los fusilamientos de la montana del Principe Pio, or Los fusilamientos del tres de mayo) is a painting completed in 1814 by the Spanish painter Francisco Goya, now in the Museo del Prado, Madrid. In the work, Goya sought to commemorate Spanish resistance to Napoleon's armies during the occupation of 1808. Along with its companion piece of the same size, The Second of May 1808 (or The Charge of the Mamelukes), it was commissioned by the provisional government of Spain at Goya's suggestion.
