Description

News of Napoleon's advance on Brussels brought to the Duke of Wellington at the Duchess of Richmond's Ball on the Eve of the Battle of Waterloo; Duke stands in centre taking news calmly, figures around him gesture fearfully, women to right look on in horror, woman faints to left, supported by man behind. 1816.
