Alphonse M. de Neuville (1835-1885)

The Marshal of Mac Mahon on a battlefield

Watercolor

Framed behind glass 49*67 cm

 

De Neuville reached the peak of his career after the Franco-Prussian War of 1870–71. The long-term French reaction was revanchism: a deep sense of bitterness, hatred, and demand for revenge against Germany, especially because of the loss of Alsace and Lorraine. Paintings that emphasized the humiliation of the defeat were in high demand, such as this one.
