Napoleonic military prints published by the Military Print Company

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.
