Two figures in a landscape. The man on the left wears a soldier’s uniform and has binoculars around his neck. He has a black jacket and red and black pants. His boots are black with green mud on the bottom. He has a red and gold hat and green gloves. He has a large white moustache. The man on the right (identified as Napoleon) wears a green trench coat over white pants and a black and white top. He wears a large semicircular hat and has a red stripe on his chest and a red medal. He wears back boots with green mud on them. The landscape behind the men has pools of water and a cannon at upper left. The horizon is near the top of the image.
