Johann Nepomuk Hoechle (1790-1835) "French catch Austrians unaware (1809)", drawing, 1809

Price:  EUR

(please note additional Austrian VAT (Value Added Tax) applies for transactions concluded within the European Union)

SOLD!!!

Drawn purely "hot on the trail", i.e. in May-July 1809 (Napoleonic Army occupied Vienna and fought against Austrians in battles of Aspern, Wagram and Znaim), it is a scene from a night raid of French soldiers of "infanterie legere" (light infantry) into the Austrian military camp. The church and distant mountain view emphasize location of this event, which is near Vienna (the church is none other than the St. Stephen Cathedral of Vienna). The latter details exclude Znaim as a possible place of occurrence, which means that this event took place either by Aspern or Wagram (see also artist's boigraphy below!).

Johann Nepomuk Hoechle was a very well-known Austrian historical painter and graphic artist who was active in the beginning of the 19th century. He was born in 1790 in Munich and commenced his studies at the Vienna Academy at the age of 14 (!). He was studying under Fueger, Wutky and Ignace Duvivier. The artist soon became a much known battle painter owing his success to great events of his time - the Napolenic era. In 1809, in the night preceding the battle of Aspern, while drawing a sketch on the hill close to Vienna, Hoechle was captured by the French. He was sentenced to execution by a firing squad as a spy, but his great wit saved him.
The sketch he was drawing is now housed in the Albertina Museum in Vienna. After furthering his studies of military painting, Hoechle experienced the world history endeavors while in suite of Kaiser Franz I. During this time Hoechle created numerous accurate sketches after nature. In 1819 he came to Italy (Rome, Naples) in entourage of the Kaiser.
