Absolutely gorgeous thread!
Detaille is much more than just one of the best French painters for me. He means something inspirative, when I look at any of his paintings, I have an urge need to paint/draw, he wakes up the passion for making art inside me.
I'm glad that MajorSennef posted the big version of the painting La Reve, it's one of my most favourite painting from Detaille also
I can't decide which style of his works I like more. In his sketches is so much movement and life. And full colour painting shows his awesome skills... And there is so many of them! There is always something on the painting that catches my eye.
Okay, enough of silly fan talk!
Re-posting one of his paintings here

Personally I love Detaille's drawings and etchings the most. Less drama...almost documentary.

The Berezina

That last painting is one of my favorites. It's the cuirassier charge at the Berezina in late November 1812 led by Doumerc. They were the last cuirassiers in the Grande Armee to still be mounted during the retreat.

The infantry shown are the redoubtable Swiss who went into the action on the western bank of the river with 1500 and came out with 300 and all of their eagles. They didn't yield a foot of ground to the Russians. They were in Merle's division and the four regiments were outstanding soldiers.

Sincerely,
M

This looks like a study for 'La Reve'.

These two are attributed to Detaille. I'm guessing they were early pieces as they don't have his more mature touch. I could be wrong though.
