The Westphalian Army in 1810: the Uniform Plates of Alexander Sauerweid

In 1810, the well-known artist, Alexander Sauerweid, produced a series of 19 illustrations on the army of the Kingdom of Westphalen. Most of the images were of the Guard. Apart from the series of Salomon Pinhas, these illustrations represent the most comprehensive contemporary uniform study of the Westphaian Army. Although there were only 19 illustrations, the one of the mounted Capitaine Général of the Guard - is shown with different coloring - which explains why we show 20 images.

These drawings originally appeared on line in German by our partner, Napoleon Online and are used with permission of the Kunstbibliothek in Berlin. Please note that Markus Stein holds the copyright on all of these images.
