Painting La Civilisation au Congo
The canvas Civilization in Congo from 1884 openly criticizes the excesses of the regime. The painter, the Belgian Edouard Manduau, was inspired by a punishment that he had witnessed in Leopoldville. The canvas shows that Leopold II’s rule was met with opposition from the outset.
