Napoleonic Battle Scenes

One of the most talented and popular of the artists serving the Imperial Court, Carle Vernet provided, in 1806, an outstanding pictorial record of the Emperor's military campaigns in Italy.   These several views, done as copper plate engravings, varied in size from 10" x 13" to 12" x 16".  The clarity possible with copperplate engraving allowed Vernet to show battles in amazing detail.  Maneuvering forces are shown almost soldier-by-soldier.  The officers and their beautifully maintained horses are particularly noteworthy.  In many of these battle scenes, it is possible to recognize the Emperor mounted on his white Arab stallion.  Shown below is the capture of Naples, which took place on the 2nd of the month of Pluviose (April) in the year VII of the new calendar.  Other engraved battle scenes by Vernet are listed below.  The condition of these engravings is very good.  The margins are ample and there is no foxing within the image area.  These splendid and unique old engravings, some of which are in later hand color are listed below.
