In his lithograph called "Le Bataillon Sacre," Raffet has drawn the denouement, the end of the fifth act, of the epic drama of Waterloo. M. Francois Flameng has painted the last scene of the fourth act. . . . [A description of the facts of the battle leading up to the last assault mounted against the English by Marshal Ney follows.] . . . In a few seconds these two masses of men, equally heroic, will meet in a deadly hand-to-hand struggle, and the French cavalry will salute approaching Death with a great cry of "Vive l'Empereur!" [Pp. 3-11; excerpted from a detailed description of the work.]
"Vive L'Empereur" Waterloo 18th of June, 1815 7 p.m. William Schaus, 204 Fifth Avenue, Madison Square. New York.
