Mexico: From Empire to Revolution is a two-part Web site based on two consecutive exhibitions at the Getty Research Institute. The current site presents nineteenth-century photographs suggestive of the romance and the reality of European imperial dreams in Mexico. Images of failed French attempts to establish an empire in Mexico in the 1860s are juxtaposed with images of the ruins of ancient empires. Part II , which will appear in February 2001, will follow Mexico's emergence as a modern, industrialized nation over the latter half of the nineteenth century and will end with the tumultuous decade-long revolution that began in 1910.
