This battle scene from the War of the First Coalition (French Revolutionary War of 1792-1797; CLICK HERE) shows the fighting Austrian and French troops. It is highly likely a work of one of Austria's leading military artists of the early 19th century - Johann Nepomuk Hoechle (for comparison, see our images nr.8-13, as well as OTHER WORKS OF THIS ARTIST IN OUR POSSESSION.
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.
