Napoleon Bonaparte shown in historical battle scene military prints by Horace Vernet. Napoleon Bonaparte is shown at the Battle of Rivoli, Battle of Friedland and Battle of Jena in other events in the history of the Napoleonic wars. Military prints available from Cranston Fine Arts.

Emile Jean Horace Vernet     The artist was born in Paris, in the galleries of the Louvre on 30th June, 1789 where his parents were lodging during the occupation of the palace in the revolution. He attained early distinction and quickly developed a disdain for the classical school of David. He set about therefore to develop his own style and his taste led him to military subjects. Taking nature as his guide, Vernet depicted the French soldier as he really was rather than in an idealised fashion. His pictures Dog of the Regiment, Trumpeter's Horse and Death of Poniatowski along with similar compositions gave him universal popularity.

In 1819 he began to paint large battle scenes but though he worked on an immense scale and with the utmost speed, his figures and groupings were thoroughly artistic. In the past, artists had represented episodes in warfare but Vernet brought whole battlefields before his audience as in his famous Battle of Italy and Capture of Rome. Several of his well-known paintings represented battles of the French Revolution such as Valmy and Jemapes. One of his most famous pictures painted in 1826 entitled the Battle of the Bridge of Arcole showed the young Napoleon seizing a tattered flag and leading his men across the bridge on 17th November, 1796. He represented many of the victories of Napoleon including scenes of the emperor at the Battle of Jena, Friedland, and Wagram. During the Crimean War, he accompanied the French army and produced several important paintings including the Battle of the Alma exhibited in 1856. His Algerian battle pieces such as the Occupation by the French Army of the Pass of Mouzia, and the Capture of Smalah were well received as he had drawn the soldiers and the events from nature. Once when asked by Louis Napoleon to alter a picture of a military review leaving out a certain general who was obnoxious to the French emperor, Vernet refused to do it stating "I am a painter of history, sire and I will not violate the truth."         Vernet died in Paris on 17th January, 1863.

Le Bataille Du Pont D Arcole by Horace Vernet.


Le Bataille Du Pont D Arcole by Horace Vernet.

The battle took place on the 17th November 1796, Arcole is a small village in Italy on the Alpine river. Bonaparte, holding the tri colour, urges on his Grenadiers and carries the Bridge of Arcole, thus bringing victory over the Austrians. This episode has passed into French Army Legend but we understand the truth to be. A French Officer cried if you fall we are lost, you shall not go further. This is not your place and Bonaparte almost drowned when the officer pushed him into the water.

Battle of Friedland by Horace Vernet.


Battle of Friedland by Horace Vernet.

As the evening draws to a close Napoleon is seen riding amongst his men after their victory at the Battle of Friedland. Due to the French pressure the Russian Commander General Levin Bennigsen moved his army back to his main camp at Konigsberg in June 1807, while his army of 60,000 men crossed the River Alle at Friedland. It was faced by a French force of 26,000 under the command of Marshal Jean Lannes. The Russian Commander attacked early on the 14th of June. The much smaller force fought of the Russian attacks for nine hours, giving time for the main French force of 80,000 to arrive. Marshall Neys Force came up from the south and attacked the Russian left flank which gave way all the way along the river until just outside Friedland where it was halted. A second corps under the command of General Laude Victor came to the support of Neys left flank. Victor also brought up 30 Artillery pieces which blasted the Russians at very short range. The Russians that were massed in the tiny vil.........

Les Adieux de Fontainebleau by Horace Vernet.


Les Adieux de Fontainebleau by Horace Vernet.

Napoleon is shown taking leave of the Imperial Guard outside the Palace of Fontainbleau. With a dramatic final gesture, I cannot embrace you all but I shall embrace your General, and after General Petit, he kissed the eagle of the 1st Grenadiers whose bearer, Lieut Fortin covers his face. The officers at the right are representative of the Allied armies and are considerably less affected by the scene than the Frenchman.
