HSC Paint Battle of Rivoli Italy 19th Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte

Oil mounted on cardboard representing Bonaparte on his horse during the Battle of Rivoli (1797), a copy of the famous painting by Philippoteaux * in 1844, vintage late nineteenth century.

This oil is in good condition and its gilt frame.

A report: small accident on the table down the middle, accidents and shortages on the frame (in the corners), see photos.

* Philippoteaux shows in his table a specific time of the Battle of Rivoli (14-15 January 1797) led by General Bonaparte against Alvinzi, commander of the Austrian army. While his wounded horse collapses, Bonaparte mounted on a new frame held by Bessières. The great chain of mountains in the background of the painting recalls the passage of the Alps Bonaparte began later in the conquest of Italy. The Battle of Rivoli in northern Italy, with the bridge of Arcola, is probably the most famous victory of the young general, after he was appointed commander of the Liberation Army of Lombardy. This is the battle that took Lombardy in the hands of the Austrians.

Henri Félix Emmanuel Philippoteaux, said Felix Philippoteaux (1815 - 1884) is a French history painter. He has produced many works depicting the Napoleonic era, including a portrait of the Emperor in uniform and a set of paintings of French military victories. He also painted Orientalist subjects. Philippoteaux was awarded the Legion of Honor in 1846.
