Inspired by the mock trial of Nicolae Ceaușescu on the 25th of December 1989 internationally broadcasted on television. After the trial the General Secretary of the Romanian Communist Party and his wife were quickly executed. Constant dated the painting 1989, however, since the trial was held on the 25th of December of that year it is more likely that the painting was finished in 1990.
