The original was painted in 1876 and this print was published in 1893 shortly after the artists death in 1891. The frame is in good order, some light foxing around the print. Meissonier was a successful painter of historical genre subjects and was renowned for his battle paintings depicting scenes from the Napoleonic campaigns. In 1859 he accompanied Napoleon Iii, whom he greatly admired, on his campaign to Italy. On his return to Paris he executed a series of paintings dedicated to the glory of Napoleon I. This is one of Meissonier’s most important military scenes. It depicts the French General Victor Moreau planning strategy with his Chief of Staff, Dessoles, before his famous victory over the Austrians and Bavarians at Hohenlinden in 1800. The men stand on a promontory surveying enemy terrain while two troopers wait patiently in the foreground.
