Bio

Horace Vernet was grandson of the eighteenth century landscape painter Joseph Vernet and the equestrian and military artist Carle Vernet. Although much influenced by the latter, he far exceeded his range of subjects and artistic talents. Indeed, he was something of a prodigy with both an inventive mind and speedy brush. A romantic Bonapartist, he perpetuated the legend of Napoleon’s genius long after his fellow countrymen had tired of the carnage brought about by the Emperor’s megalomanical ambitions.
