Signed and dated lower center on a rock B.er
43,5 x 53,5 cm
Provenance: Thomas Barents collection (according to the ink inscription on the frame). Sale in Paris, Drouot
Montaigne, Ader Picard Tajan, June 26, 1990, n°233 (illustration reproduced in reverse, date read as 1799,
30 000 francs hammer).
At the end of the 18th century, Bacler d'Albe's views of the Alps are close to those of Claude-Louis Châtelet and
Philippe-Jacques de Loutherbourg, before he became the illustrator of Napoleon's military campaigns.
He became a close friend of Bonaparte at the siege of Toulon in 1793, then he was appointed head of his personal topographic
in 1799 (he worked alone with the Emperor, under his tent, day and night).
