Napoleon's Mounted Chasseurs on a Campaign
1816 - Two oil paintings on canvas; approximately 10 x 13 inches or 25 x 32 cm. In contemporary wood gilt frames, with a label pasted onto the back of each canvas dated 1816 and signed, "C. M". These unidentified works depict French cavalry officers -- Napoleon's mounted Chasseurs of the Imperial Guard or mounted Red Lancers -- on one of the 1812-14 Napoleonic campaigns across Europe. One depicts the mounted officers in the foreground bringing up the rear of a column of soldiers advancing with a covered wagon crossing over a stone bridge in a European valley at dawn. The other depicts the same column of soldiers and wagons at rest along a river in front of a stone building, with the mounted officers in the foreground overlooking the scene. There is moderate soiling to the canvas and frame, which can easily be cleaned; else fine with no visible cracks to the pigments. A very fine pair of paintings in the manner of Hippolyte Lecomte (1781-1857), who painted many similar scenes of the Napoleonic wars, and also of Louis Lejeune (1775-1848); Charles Thevenin (1764-1838); and Nicolas Antoine Taunay (1755-1838).
