The first in the new series is "Napoleon, Near Moscow, waiting for a Boyer deputation by Vasili Vereshchagin.
I love the mood of this painting, the fog of battle, Napoleon, standing hands behind his back, waiting alone while his army celebrate. I'm not sure if Napoleon looks as if the weight of the world is on his still on his shoulders or a weight has just been lifted.
