Highly Decorative though unsigned 'Bodycolor' or 'Gouache' Painting of France's Napoleon III at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, with his Generals , other Army Officers and Cavalry and Infantry Troops.
Napoleon's grandson, Louis Napoleon re-established the French Empire in 1852 after 4 years as president of the Second Republic. He had grandiose ideas and he led France until 1870, when the Prussians defeated the French in the Franco-Prussian War. His reign was mainly remembered though for his attempted conquest of Mexico which ended in abject failure.

In the extraordinary painting , the unknown artist has used 'gouache' color paints and some of the background figures of army troops have been cut out and pasted using the technique called 'decoupage' , similar to 'scrap'.
The painting has its original glazing and is in excellent condition measuring 39 inches wide x 28 tall Circa 1860.
