You must forgive my ignorance Giuseppe, I only just realised that you are the painter, I thought you were just posting his links!

You Sir are an amazing artist and these works are very fine indeed. Hussar!

I can't get my eyes out of this one.
The terrible atmosphere after the lost battle just breathes out. It's a great scene, yet sad and worrying. I love the detail like his glowes on the ground.
Awesome post! (:

Alphonse Lalauze, a great French military painter. The original paintings are coloured.

French gunner Barailler defending his battery against Austrian cavalry at Marengo.





General Blücher surrendering at Lubeck ( 1806 ).




Bivouac of French light cavalry in 1812.




Napoleon informing the hard pressed Consular Guard of the arrival of Desaix's division ( Marengo, 1800 ).

Thanks, Cath. Glad I was able to share it. I guess that the second picture was removed because of the repost.
