About this Piece
A specially commissioned oil painting on canvas by our principal artist Liu Yingjie, interpreting "Wellington at Waterloo" by Robert Alexander Hillingford. The painting is stretched and framed in England using a highly distressed Italian gold leaf moulding.
The painting depicts Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, encountering Napoleon for the first time whilst commanding an Anglo-Dutch-German army that consisted of approximately 73,000 troops, 26,000 of whom were British. Defeating Napoleon put Wellesley in the top rank of Britain's military heroes and after ending his military career, returned to politics acting as British prime minister twice. He became a leading figure in the House of Lords until his retirement and remained Commander-in-Chief of the British Army until his death in 1852.
