Original Kupferradierung mit Aquatinta, altkoloriert. Dargestellt wird die Einnahme und Erstürmung der Stadt Ebersberg am 3. Mai 1809 durch die französischen Truppen. Fine aquatint in original hand color by the famous German painter Johann Lorenz Rugendas from Augsburg. J.L. Rugendas made the drawings for his famous serious of the Napoleonic battles himself and the sketches were mostly drawn at the authentic locations. He used for his copper engravings the aquatint technique, which allowed only a very small edition of examples to print. It is said that the Napoleonic battle scenes by Rugendas only were published in a number of 150 to 300 copies depending on the battle.
