Oil on canvas, 1889, signed 'F. Schommer', dated and inscribed 'à M.G. Larroumet' lower left, lined.
16 x 21 1/4 in., 21 1/4 x 26 1/2 in. (frame).
Note: This painting is inscribed to Gustave Larroumet (1852-1903), a French historian and professor at the Sorbonne who published extensively on academic subjects, including Napoleon, which may be why Schommer dedicated this work to him. The soldier depicted is a stylized Russian Army Cuirassier from circa 1812-1814. The artist has changed the color of the collars and the cuirasse, which should be black. This change in color may be related to the legend that the Pskovian, a Russian dragoon regiment, captured French Golden Cuirasses and wore their colors instead of those of the Russian regiment. Our thanks to Sergey Podstanitsky for his assistance in the cataloguing of this painting.Property from the Estate of John Richardson
