Study for The Battle of Waterloo
|Around the empty spaces for the arm and head of Fremantle, Wellington’s aide-de-camp, Pieneman drew a group of infantrymen firing their muskets at the enemy. Extra ammunition was carried onto the battlefield in chests. Such details are more visible in Pieneman’s drawings than in his painting. However, oil proved a better medium for representing musket shots and the associated smoke. Date: c 1824. Object ID: RP-T-1964-99.
