Prise of Bond, 27 March 1832. Algerian battle scene with elegantly dressed Algerian troops manning shore batteries with a contingent of French troops below prepared to accept the surrender. A French naval ship beyond. Beautifully executed with light foxing throughout. The French invaded Algiers in 1830 and fought for nearly two decades. Images such as this were particularly popular for their exotic subjects. 8 1/4" x 11 1/2", archivally mounted, matted and framed.
