French Military Artist, Jean Baptiste Edouard Detaille, military art prints of Napoleon and the Napoleonic Wars, Franco-Prussian War, and the Battle of Fontenoy. Art prints by Cranston Military Arts. 

Jean Baptiste Edouard Detaille

Born in Paris on 5th October, 1847, the young Detaille was surrounded by military figures from his grandfather who had worked as a sutler responsible for organising Napoleon's transports, to a great aunt who had married Admiral Villeneuve. Nonetheless, his only ambition was to be an artist and he let it be known that he wished to study with Cabanel but through various circumstances ended up in the great Meissonier's studio. It was in 1867 that the young artist first exhibited a picture, showing a view of Meissonier's studio but in the following year he showed his first military piece. While it was based solely on imagination, The Drummer's Halt represented a scene from the French Revolution. This was to be the beginning of a glorious career painting many military scenes from French history.

The Franco-Prussian War had a profound effect on the artist particularly as it forced him to see war in person. On the outbreak of war he enlisted in the 8th Mobile Bataillon and by November 1870 was attached to General Ducrot's staff seeing action in the fighting around Paris. On the Marne he saw regiments under fire, groups of skirmishes dispatched to the front and senseless retreats. These experiences of war enabled him to produce many striking portrayals of the actions. Indeed, in 1872, he was forced to withdraw two paintings of the war from an exhibition so as not to offend Germany. Over the next few years, Detaille exhibited some of his finest paintings of the conflict such as Salut aux Blesses of 1877, La Defense de Champigny of 1879 and Le Soir de Rezonville. With de Neuville he produced two large panoramas of the battles at Champigny and Rezonville.
