Emile-Jean-Horace Vernet, also known by Horace Vernet, was a third generation French artist. Both his father and grandfather were famous artists so it was natural that Vernet carried on the tradition with his own profession thanks to an innate artistic ability and amply opportunities for artistic training and guidance at his fingertips. Often compared to the American artist Norman Rockwell, the paintings of Emile-Jean-Horace Vernet had a quality which was very similar to the works of Rockwell, despite the large differences in their choices for the subject matter of their paintings. The crowning achievements in the oil paintings of Emile-Jean-Horace Vernet were in his large scale representations of heroic and historic battles fought by the French, most of which were quite fresh in the memories of older citizens at the time. Vernet also innovated the art of the portraiture of military men by choosing to forego the idealization of their features into a generic military man and portraying the subject with realism to show the humanity and individual behind the uniform without changing the physical features. Due to this preference for his own art, it is relatively obvious that Vernet did not like the style of Renaissance Classicism and chose to create his own style, which he felt would ultimately be better, instead. Due to the success of his earlier works which were portrayals of historically important battle scenes, Emile-Jean-Horace Vernet was chosen to accompany the French military during the Crimean War. His express purpose was to record the history in action by painting scenes of the battles or whatever types of actions might be taken. Vernet prided himself on this task and Emile-Jean-Horace Vernet oil paintings from the fields came to be known as very accurate representations of the historical truths that took place there. Having a artist in residence in order to create paintings of historical scenes of war, battles, and other important political actions as they occurred was common practice during the era and prior to it because there was no technological innovation such as photography to help record the situations in a more instantaneous manner. The images produced in Emile-Jean-Horace Vernet paintings would become great symbols to the French as images of their successes and an important source of nationalistic pride for them as well. Some of the most important pieces of Emile-Jean-Horace Vernet artwork are titled: Battle of Jena, Battle of the Bridge of Arcole, Dog of the Regiment, Death of Poniatowski, Trumpeterís Horse, Hunting in Pontine Marshes, Napoleon Exiled on St. Helena, The Gate at Clichy During the Defense of Paris, and The Battle of Wagram. All of these paintings display the very best types of artistic techniques that Emile-Jean-Horace Vernet employed in the creation of his paintings whether they were battle scenes or more tame landscapes or historical paintings which still remained significant to the art of France due to his position in the world of art there.
