Date: c. 1975

This is the original Gouache painting by Angus McBride.

This painting was originally used to illustrate The Story of Africa: Grand Sultan of the East. At the Battle of the Pyramids, the decadent luxury of the Mamelukes came face to face with the cannons and muskets of the French led by Napoleon.

Later the figure of Napoleon and his horse (here possibly Marengo) were cut from the background and remounted as part of a feature in a Look and Learn Annual. Date to be confirmed.
