This oil on canvas, probably painted in the 1900s , represents one of the favorite scenes of the military painter that was Henri-Louis Dupray. The scenes of battles, and more particularly of charges, always heroic, were highly appreciated by the general public, and the painters did not fail to exploit the vein. In the clatter of hooves, the smell of powder, the cry of horsemen howling in combat, the battle begins in senseless violence. While in the foreground, the drum has fallen, its instrument rolls further, the skin already punctured, and now unusable. This canvas is late in the painter's production. The firm and precise brush has given way to more rough lines, touches of color, suggested shapes, evoked details.
But with such power, that for a little bit, one would almost hear the indescribable tumult of the charge that rises to the enemy.

Born on a cold day in November 1841 (the 3rd), in Sedan in the Ardennes, Henri-Louis Dupray was very early drawn to the vocation of arms. But it sometimes happens that life has surprises in store for us, of which it has the secret. Refused to military life following a banal accident which leaves him somewhat disabled, he chooses another path. He cannot be a soldier like his ancestor, a former soldier of the Empire, while the devil, he will draw the army! This is how he entered the School of Fine Arts in Paris. Admitted in the workshop of the great Léon Cogniet (1794-1880), he also frequented the workshop of Isidore Pils (1815-1875), orientalist painter and of military scene, who had also followed the Army of the Second Empire in Crimea in 1854-1855. Our young painter exhibited for the first time at the Salon at the age of 22. It offers a "Cuirassier". However, the following year, nor the following ones for that matter, he did not present paintings at the Salons. It was not until 1870 that "Maréchal Ney à Waterloo" appeared at the Salon that year.
