This beautiful lithography from the first half of the 19th century ,in its gilded frame,represents Napoleon on his white horse ,following by his troops.
He passes in front of the Austrian soldiers prisoners and wounded he has defeated at the Ulm battle in 1805 and pays tribute to their courage by taking off his hat and shouting ’’ Honneur au courage malheureux! ’’ (Honor to unhappy courage! ) Beautiful homage of a winner to the vanquished.
Except a little tear on the top left near the driver’s whip, some others in the margin,and an other at the bottom right ,this engraving is in good antique condition. It is surrounded by a golden stuccoed wooden frame.
There are some little stucco lacks on the edges,but nothing important, and normal for the age.
The cardboard at the back has been changed.
Dimension :
framed = 11’’ x 14,3’’ (28cm x 36,3cm)
sight = 9,3’’ x 12,6’’ (23,7cm x 32cm)
This engraving was made after a painting of Jean-Baptiste Debret (1768-1848),currently exposed to the Château de Versailles,which was inspired by an article from ‘’Journal de Paris du 15 Brumaire An XIV’’
(November 6,1805) .
A very pretty engraving which will delight any Napoleon amateur !

Please,don’t take into account some white traces due to the reflection of the light.
