J.F.J. SCHWEBASH-DESFONTAIN. France, 1769–1823 Rest of the Russian cavalry.

JACQUES FRANCOIS JOSEPH SCHWEBACH-DESFONTAIN. France, 1769–1823 Rest of the Russian cavalry. Famous French artist, invited by Emperor Alexander I to the post of artistic director of the imperial porcelain factories, from 1815 to 1820.

The work is a rest scene of dismounted Russian lancers and cuirassiers, who are invited into the house by a stately Russian peasant woman in red. The idyllic image of the girl does not deceive the cuirassier, and he looks incredulously at the peasant dwelling. While the Lancers are rather seduced by the invitation. Zealous horses, surrounded by good-natured dogs, are presented against the backdrop of a boundless clear sky and the pastoral landscape of the foothills. The rationality of the classic message reveals the moral imperative of the army - to protect the population, the people. Signed and indistinct date Swebach 181 (6). Oil on canvas, 54 x 72 cm.
