An interesting print of the French Military illustrating Maurice de Saxe leading his troops, signed by Jules Jacques Veyrassat 1828-1893, after Jean Louis Ernest Meissonier 1815-1891 and published in Paris.

Veyrassat studied art in Paris under Lehman and had his first paintings exhibited in the Paris Salon in 1848. Veyrassat was widely distinguished in France by his painting, and he garnered further attention when he began working as an etcher in the 1860s. Veyrassat was awarded medals for his etching work in 1866 and 1869. He continued to accrue acclaim and recognition for both his painting and etching work. He received another medal for his painting in 1872. Finally, in 1878 Veryrassat was awarded the prestigious Chevalier de la Legion d’Honneur (the Medal of Honour of Knighthood) by the Paris Salon. Veyrassat is generally associated with the Barbizon school of painters.
