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

He is pictured here at the famous Pont d'Arcole during the Italian Campaign.

Nicknamed “The proud brigand”, he particularly distinguished himself in 1796 at the Battle of Castiglione. The French army is indeed in a critical position, it is then the only one to advise the attack, it gains the victory thanks to its tactics and its military maneuvers. This achievement of arms will lead Bonaparte once Emperor to appoint him Duke of Castiglione.
