In connection with the Franco-Prussian war of 1870-71, painted many times in detail. Painting on wood panel (poplar).
Monogrammed "ed" at the bottom right. In good condition but note a small pinhole at the top center, which corresponds to the location of an old military medal (unfortunately lost) which was - according to the former owner - pinned to the board.In the absence of expertise, even if for me the doubt is not allowed, I sell it as "attributed to" edouard detailed. 19th century frame, very heavy. Frame: 49 x 37.5 cm. Panel: 33 x 23.5 cm. Edouard detailed, born in Paris on October 5, 1848, is a French painter renowned for his military scenes.

In the 1890s he painted many paintings inspired by the Napoleonic epic, in particular scenes of battle and cavalry charges. He used uniforms and period accessories to perfect the accuracy of his paintings.Edouard detailed painting is related to realism and naturalism.
