  1. That's a sweeping and detailed scene, but it still looks far too clean; more glorious than gory. Do we know who the artist is?"

    1. I checked on line and it was painted by the French artist, Henri Félix Emmanuel Philippoteaux and entitled 'Charge of the French Cuirassiers at Waterloo.'

  2. Waterloo, a biggest defeat of French army, that later was remembered with the name of a railway station in London.
