On the nearly barren landscape, row after row of foot-soldiers march along the horizon at left. The focal point of the drawing is the artillery, a few soldiers on horseback, and several horses pulling and three soldiers pushing a cannon. Another group of soldiers on horseback appear at right. They all appear to be rushing towards the battlefield, which is visible in the distance with clouds of smoke from fired weapons.

A dashing depiction by the French painter, who specialized in landscapes and fans. Vient exhibited at the Salon of 1878-1881.
