26.10.2017 PWT 43-2017 AGUSTIN PERAIRE PICTURE EDITOR OF THE EXECUTION OF EMPEROR MAXIMILIAN

We know very little about Agustin – Auguste or Augustin – Peraire, we do not know if he winessed the events or even went to Queretaro. More likely, he acted as a studio photographer and an editor, who could access and reproduce the photographs of François Aubert. We know his address in the year of the dramatic events: 1, San Jose el real and the name of his partner, Manuel Murghía y Romero (1807-1860), with whom he published an important iconographic source for the historians, the Album Maximiliano.
The albumen prints reproduced here belong to the personal album of Philippe de Massa (1831-1910) who arrived in Mexico in the Summer 1866 as the young “aide-de-camp” of general Bazaine, already on the move to leave Maximilien.
