Lionel Royer: Vercingetorix Throwing down His Weapons at the feet of Julius Caesar
Title
French: Vercingetorix jette ses armes aux pieds de Jules César
Vercingetorix throws down his arms at the feet of Julius Caesar
Object type painting
Description
The painting depicts the surrender of the Gallic chieftain after the Battle of Alesia (52 BC). The depiction of Gauls with long hair and mustaches is also called into question today. The horse is a Percheron, although at this time this breed was not in Gaul. The rectangular shield also does not accord with the time when they were mostly oval.
