Elizabeth Thompson’s The 28th Regiment at Quatre Bras

A celebrated military painter

Unlike other military painters at the time whose work depicted aerial views of battle, Thompson created paintings so realistic that people thought they were witnessing the real events when viewing them. The terror and intensity of battle is captured in detail on the faces of the individual soldiers.
