Painting, Empire, XX

Based on the work of Charles Thévenin: Impressive full-length portrait of Charles Pierre François Augereau, Marshal of Napoleon.

He is here represented at the famous Arcole bridge during the Italian campaign.

Nicknamed “The Proud Brigand”, he particularly distinguished himself in 1796 at the Battle of Castiglione. The French army was in fact in a critical position, he was the only one to advise the attack, he won the victory thanks to his tactics and his military maneuvers. This feat of arms will lead Bonaparte, once Emperor, to name him Duke of Castiglione.

This oil on canvas taken in a wooden frame comes from the Château de Prat located in Ariège. Built in the 13th century, it was originally the home of the Counts of Comminges. This painting is part of an important series of four large portraits of personalities of the Empire commissioned by the former owner of the castle and in our possession: Maréchal Augereau, Maréchal Victor, Maréchal Sérurier and Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand.
