Briefly discuss the Hay-market Incident. Then compare The Police Monument, by Johannes Gelert (1889) to The Hay-market
Monument, by Albert Weinert (1893). Be sure to comment on the style, subject matter/iconography, medium, and the context in which each work was produced (e.g. who commissioned it and why, who would have seen it, and how it would have been interpreted at the time it was produced). Also, be sure to tell us which of the two monuments you like best and why.
