Horace Vernet (30 June 1789 - 17 January 1863), French painter, autographed annotated letter (ALS). This one page letter measures approximately 4" x 7" in size and is dated March 6, 1832. The letter contains a red wax seal on the reverse which has been split in half due to the opening of the letter. The bottom margin of the letter is also slightly frayed.  

Vernet was born to Claude Vernet, who himself was a famous French painter. He was born inside the Louvre, where his parents were staying during the French Revolution. 

Vernet became a patron of Napoleon III shortly after the July Revolution had ended. He would paint the battle scenes of war in a more natural and realistic way. 

Vernet gained a disdain for the more traditional artwork influenced by Classicism. Rather, he depicted soldiers in a less idealizing way. Some of his more famous paintings inlcude, "Dog of the Regiment" and "Death of Poniatowski."

This letter is crisply signed by Vernet at the conclusion. It is in good to very good condition, with overall light toning not affecting the signature. There are some scattered creases and expected intersecting folds.
