JOB DESCRIPTION:
Jerzy Kossak was keen on Napoleonic themes in his work. Works such as the one offered in the catalog of the XXXVIII Auction of Works of Art, "Vision of Napoleon in the Retreat from under Moscow" from 1939, showing the drama of the retreat of the defeated Grand Army, were very popular. Amidst the cold and snowstorm, Napoleon's image of the Sphinx's head surrounded by splendor in the distance is a reminder of the defeat of the Egyptian campaign in 1801. The masterful use of soft, blurred outlines, the accurate rendering of chiaroscuro and a color range enlivened by purple give here a unique effect of a misty winter wilderness.

Biography of Jerzy Kossak is available on the website of Krakow Auction House [SEE].
