The Index

Napoleon's Retreat From Moscow by Adolph Northern (1828 - 1876)

Sitting in the ashes of a ruined city without having received the Russian capitulation, and facing a Russian maneuver forcing him out of Moscow, Napoleon started his long retreat. Supplying the army became an impossibility - the lack of grass weakened the army's remaining horses, almost all of which died or were killed for food by starving soldiers. Only about 22,000 of Napoleon's men survived the Russian campaign.

The Death of Nelson by Benjamin West (1738 - 1820)

This painting shows the great British naval hero Lord Nelson on the deck of his ship 'Victory' at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. He lies dying after being shot by a French sniper. The painting is not completely accurate, as Nelson died below decks, where he was carried after being wounded.

Austrians Thermopyles by Albrecht Adam (1786 - 1862)

After the indecisive outcome of the battle of Aspen in 1809 the question was who (French or Austrians) will be the first to gather enough of reinforcement. To this avail French troops from Italy rushed towards Vienna, defeating some sporadic resistance on their way. The spots were a small number of defenders put a rather heroic defence were Naborje (Malborghetto) in Canale valley, Predel Pass, Col and Razdrto Pass.

Hougoumont by Robert Gibb (1845 - 1932)

At Waterloo, Wellington had the reinforced farm Hougomont anchoring his right flank, and several other farms on his left. A crucial element of the French plan of battle was to draw Wellington's reserve to his right flank in defense of Hougomont, but French attacks on the farm were eventually unsuccessful (though at one point they succeeded in breaking the door down) and Wellington's reserves were not drawn away from his center.

The morning before Waterloo by Aylward

Wellington rose around 02:00 or 03:00 on the morning of 18 June, and wrote letters until dawn. He had written to Bl�cher confirming with him that he would give battle at Mont St Jean provided Bl�cher would provide him with at least a corps, otherwise he would retreat towards Brussels. After 06:00 Wellington was out supervising the deployment of his forces. In the painting, the Duke of Wellington Accepts a cup of tea from the 1st Battalion 95th Rifles.

British Cavalry Attack

This one is based on a model box picture. Here's the description from a site that sells these: Reenact "Waterloo" (Napoleonic War 1815) with This Historic Battle Game Set. Plastic 1/72 Scale Figures: French Infantry and British Heavy Cavalry. From the Makers at Italeri.

Austrian Artillery at Essling 1809 by Keith Rocco

Savage fighting had marked the first day and a half of the Battle of Aspern-Essling, as both towns changed hands, back and forth, each attack provoking a furious counter-attack. With backs to the Danube, the Grande Armee had to stand and endure everything the Archduke and his inspired army could throw at them. For many Frenchmen, the worst came at the end, as the exhausted Austrians left it to their artillery to exact a high toll in vengence for so many defeats.

Archeduke Charles at Aspern by J.P. Krafft

It shows the Archeduke Charles at the battle of Aspern-Esslingen. The Museum add's the comment that the picture was surely inspired by Napoleon crossing the St.Bernhard (J.L.David)

Kutuzov at Borodino by an unknown artist

Borodino was a battle fought during the French invasion of Russia. Mikhail Kutuzov, the best Russian general of the time, met Napoleon's Grande Armee in September, just outside of Moscow. Napoleon was feeling sick at the time, and launched a headlong attack at the Russians. Both armies suffered huge casualties. Kutuzov decided not to use up all of his troops at Borodino, and decided to retreat the next day, allowing Napoleon to capture Moscow. In the end, around 70,000 men died. It was the bloodiest battle in the Napoleonic Wars.

Napoleon Crossing the Alps by Jacques-Louis David

This title is given to the five versions of an oil on canvas equestrian portrait of Napoleon Bonaparte painted by the French artist Jacques-Louis David between 1801 and 1805. Initially commissioned by the Spanish Ambassador to France, the composition shows a strongly idealized view of the real crossing that Napoleon and his army made across the Alps in 1800.

Great idea Boney!!! *y*

One thing though: Perhaps more members get inspired to build painting vigs because of this index, wich will add more content to the index, wich is good BUT isn't the current information you showed a bit too much

What about only the name and refference to the thread? Or would that be a bit too little?

I can't take credit for the idea because Woody64 suggested it in the pirate forum and Phred brought this again to my attention.

Personally I prefer some lines of explanation about the scenes.

In that case, great idea Woody64 and Phred! *y*

Personally I prefer some lines (not more) of explanation about the scenes.

Fair enough, but the problem is not everyone gives an explanation about the scenes aye?

One could just ask the creator offcourse, but still.

In that case we'll just do some searching on the internet.

Can anyone tell me who painted "The morning before Waterloo"?

You can als do a google picture search using painting and some keywords from the napoleonic area.

for example: painting napoleon storming

Would you happen to know his date of birth and death? ;-)

Like Woody64 already mentioned, with a search engine you can find a lot of paintings related to Napoleonic wars, pirates, Islanders, .....

Some examples:

You're quick to jump on this one which great! *y* But as usual your title graphic really sucks :-P

You lads really need lessons in fundamentals of graphic design and how to create eye catching text...

Are the two best painting inspired MOCs on the web suitable for this index or are they not piratical enough? Anyway, here some other piratical painting based works -

Napoleon by Brickshelf member Shark

The Spirit of '76 by our member Elroy Davis

And Mr. Pies' rendition of the death of Nelson one reminds me of another similar one. *y*

And yet some more non-piratical painting based MOCs.... X-D

Yes, these are some of the best Lego versions of paintings.

But like you indicated, several of them are not piratical enough.

However, they are great inspirations for people who want to try this for themselves.

And that's one of the main reasons this index exists.

I'm sure you could do an excellent job in building a painting ;-)

I also plan to give this a try but first I need to finish sorting all my bricks which might take until the end of the year.

Until that time, all my MOCing activities are on hold.

Yes, it must be done so I don't have to keep revamping the graphics! X-D

Which program did you make that graphic in?

I used Paint Shop Pro to make it. That's the only graphics program I now how to use (and coreldraw).

But I recently also installed Adobe photoshop and Fireworks (have to check if it was that one because I'm not at my home PC) but didn't get a chance to use them.

Maybe you can make some kind of tutorial?

We better open another thread to continue this discussion.

Yes, I hoped they could provide some motivation for any of the readers despite the lack piratical atmosphere. Are going to include Mr. Davis' and Mr. Shark's work I hyperlinked, however? Here are the original paintings -

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Napoleon_Crossing_the_Alps

And thank you, as well, but If I ever do create a MOC based on a famous painting I can't guarantee you will be piratical. X-D It's great to hear you'll be making your own attempt, I will await the outcome with eager anticipation!

Wow, that's a great picture, I havn't seen that one before. I think this'll be my next work... >:-)

Excellent! I shall look forward to that one as well. *y*
