The interesting thing about all these figures is that the faces are all black and white photos of a male face (who we believe to be Mr Bertrand).
We are proud to offer a wonderful example of a mid-19th Century French gouache folk art military painting. This example pays homage to a watch maker named JM Bertrand. Depicting several subject matters including 3 soldiers, one with his hat on the floor, one seated on a horse stamped 96 and one standing with his hat in hand. With a dove flying above holding a souvenir wreathe, with another dove carrying an olive branch. The reverse of this paining is mounted on an old calendar which is still firmly intact . A wonderful piece of folk-art militaria art, completely untouched in form still in its original maple frame.
