Bonaparte at St. Helena.
Engraving. Plate 203 x 254mm. 8 x 10".
Napoleon on his horse on the island of St Helena where he was sent to live in exile in 1815; possibly William Balcombe on a horse lower down the cliff, a friend of Napoleon and inhabitant of Saint Helena, but a friendship that ended in 1818 when British authorities became suspicious that Balcombe had acted as an intermediary between Napoleon and Paris, and dismissed him from the Island.
