This large, relatively na´ve (amateur?) drawing, executed in the 1810s, is an important and interesting find for historians of the German military, as well as collectors of Napoleonica (especially for those interested in the items stemming from Napoleonic wars on the territory of modern Germany). It shows a nighttime bivouac of the "Freicorps" of Prussian cavalry major, Ferdinand von Schill - a small riding party of cavalry and mounted infantry, operating in 1809 behind enemy (Napoleonic) lines (CLICK HERE, HERE and HERE).
In the center of the composition, one sees the "Freicorps" commander, Major von Schill: he is seated under a makeshift shed. On May 31, 1809, he will be killed in a street fight in Stralsund, North-Eastern Germany.

Provenance: English auction house "Kidson-Trigg", Swindon, February 21, 2017, lot 549 (as "European colonial soldiers in a woodland" - ?!!).
