The Archduke of Austria had been Commander in Chief of the Austrian armies from 1806 to 1809, during which time he was the only allied general who could match Napoleon. Lawrence portrays him as a man of action, set against the smoke of battle, influenced perhaps by Hoppner’s image of Admiral Nelson.
