Carle Vernet
Birth: Aug. 14, 1758
Bordeaux, France
Death: Nov. 17, 1835
Paris, France

Painter and Lithographer. He produced numerous sporting and military scenes. Born Antoine Charles Horace Vernet, he studied with his father, Claude Joseph Vernet. He early-on gained notice with his horse riding and nature depictions, though after winning the Prix de Rome in 1782 he considered entering a monestary. After his sister was executed during the Reign of Terror he stopped painting for a time, but began again around 1795. Vernet produced finely detailed battle depictions designed to honor Napoleon, particularly his 1806 "Battle of Marengo". The Emperor awarded him the Legion of Honour in 1808, while Louis XVIII presented him the Order of Saint Michael. In his later years he specialized in hunting images and horses, and was himself an avid rider. Today his work hangs in several important museums, while he has an ongoing fictional life in that Sherlock Holmes stated that his grandmother was a sister of the French painter Vernet, though the detective failed to specify whether he meant Carle or his son Horace. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
