A Smith after Dahling
Genl. G L von Blucher.
London Dec 21st. 1813
Stipple engraving
280 x 220 mm
£85
A delicately executed head and shoulders portrait of General Blucher, this portrait was made soon after Möckern (October 16, 1813) where Blücher was made a field marshal, and after the victory he pursued the French with his accustomed energy. In the winter of 1813–1814 Blücher, with his chief staff officers, was mainly instrumental in inducing the allied sovereigns to carry the war into France itself.
