De Neuvile, Alphonse-Marie-Adolphe
Alphonse-Marie-Adolphe de Neuville (1835 Ð 1885) was a French painter who specialized in very patriotic historical scenes with subjects such as the Franco-Prussian War, the Crimean War and the Zulu War. He originally joined the naval school in Lorient, France, but he soon realized that his primary passion was art. After his death, several of his pieces were acquired for the Luxembourg Palace in Paris.
