The painting in the mentioned in the question above, The Battle of Austerlitz (Plate 9.17) was also known as the Battle of the Three Emperors, it depicts a moment in time from Napoleon’s campaign and possibly one of the greatest battles Napoleon fought in. It was against Russia and Austria in the Czech Republic. The artist François Gérard was commissioned to paint this great art piece as a commemoration for the Grande Armée's very famous battle. One can perhaps argue this was François Gérard’s bid for recognition as a painter of military history. It is a painting of individual command in capturing the composure of the Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte in his moment of unparalleled military victory. It is possible that Napoleon Bonaparte may have commissioned the image and dictated the terms of the subject and its treatment and also controlled its display.
The painting ( Plate 9.17) was exhibited at the Salon in 1810, although originally this large canvas was destined for the ceiling of the chamber in which the Conseil d’état (Counsel of State) met. As mentioned this is a very large canvas, the dimensions are 510 x 958 cm (200.8 x 377.2 in) and consists of oil on canvas. The artist, François Gérard uses both the ‘painterly’ technique and the ‘linear’ technique in this particular painting, which seems to visually display the neo classical style of painting, the softer areas, for example the sun light, indicate the ‘painterly’ technique with bright ‘soft’ tones, and muted colours in dark contrast. Perhaps a short synopsis on the terminology of the techniques used in painting by artists is; the ‘Painterly’ technique is one which depicts shapes by solid masses of colour. Whereas, the ‘linear’ technique is based more around lines and boundaries, although it is hard to differentiate between the two on occasions, they often blend in well together. The hue and colour also play a significant role within this painting, colours of red and gold on both the uniforms and horses tack of the French military, thus giving the appearance of royalty or richness among the French army, whereas the Russian and Austrian are in rather drab, dark colours.
