Description Edit | History

Émile Jean-Horace Vernet (June 30, 1789 - January 17, 1863) was a French artist known for his paintings of battles, portraits, and Eastern culture. He was the Director of the French Academy in Rome from 1829 until 1834.

His father was Carle Vernet and his grandfather Claude Joseph Vernet were also famous painters. He was born in the Paris Louvre while his parents were staying there during the French Revolution.

In The Adventure of the Greek Interpreter, Sherlock Holmes claimed that, "My ancestors were country squires... my grandmother... was the sister of Vernet, the French artist."

  • A version of his painting of Napoleon reviewing the Imperial Guard as a cropped version of The Battle of Jena, Won by Napoleon was used as cover artwork for the game Jena-Auerstadt
  • A version of his painting of Napoleon at Wagram was used as cover artwork for the game Wagram.
