This painting was executed by a French monogramist (for his or her monogram, see our image nr.9) in the late 1810s. It shows a veteran of Napoleon's Old Guard, one of a handful of survivors of the ferocious Battle of Waterloo, the so-called "Grognards" (CLICK HERE, HERE and HERE)..
Besides placing a monogram, the author written in upperr right area of painting the following title: "Waterloo /Nouvelle /Thermopyles /1815". In doing so, the artist drew a parallel between the (unyielding to enemy) Old Guard and the legendary Greek defenders of Thermopylae (this battle was fought in 480 BC at the narrow coastal pass of Thermopylae; CLICK HERE).
