This painting captures the joy of a soldier (he is a sergeant of "grenadiers-a-pied de la garde imperiale" - CLICK HERE) who had just received the Cross of Legion of Honor from the Emperor personally (in the background of the composition we see Napoleon galloping off with his train). This grenadier was just awarded for the most honored deed of any soldier - the capture of the enemy's flag (in this painting, it is a British flag). The depicted scene could have taken place only during the one of battles of Peninsular War (Winter 1808/09?).

Nicolas Toussaint Charlet (1792 Paris - 1845 Paris) was a very well-known French artist and son of a Napelonic veteran. He studied at the atelier of Gros and a couple of years later brought out his first lithographs, with which he soon gained popularity. In 1839 Charlet became a drawing teacher at the "Ecole Polytechnique". Along with Raffet and Domier he belonged to the best French lithograph artists of the first half of the 19th century.
