Return from Elba (1831)

Louis Garneray: Return from Elba, 28th of February 1815

The brig Inconstant, under Captain Taillade and ferrying Napoleon to France, crosses the path of the brig Zéphir, under Captain Andrieux. Inconstant flies the tricolour of the Empire, while Zéphir flies the white ensign of the Monarchy. Soldiers of the Imperial Guard are crouching on deck while Napoleon stands fore of the main mast.
