Napoleon - An Intimate Portrait


Fight scene

Fight scene

Horace Vernet - c. 1810

In this scene, two warriors have competed in front of their opposing armies. One now stands with a broken sword in hand, dragging his adversary, who remains unharmed. Here again, a classical theme provides a vehicle for creative expression.
