Antoine-Jean Gros: The Battle of Nazareth

The Battle of Nazareth: Antoine-Jean Gros

The Battle of Nazareth by French Neoclassicism artist Antoine-Jean Gros shows the rout of Ottoman forces by the French army in April 1799.

Painted just two years after the event in 1801, the choice of coloration gives us an impression of the heat of both the battle and the climate.

Antoine-Jean Gros’ The Battle of Nazareth is in the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Nantes, France.
