Product Description

This is an original 1875 black and white woodcut of an illustration by French artist Alphonse de Neuville which depicts King Edward III of England paying homage to King Philip VI of France. "Why?" you might say. This was the result of William the Conqueror being a little too good at his job. Although he had been the French Duke of Normandy, he also became the ruler of England after a successful invasion. This meant that his heirs were both Kings of England and French Dukes, therefore they were still under the command of the King of France. This tense situation was rendered even more complicated by the blood ties between these twoparticular monarchs, and the whole thing eventually culminated in the Hundred Years War.

This piece was illustrated by De Neuville, Alphonse. There is no visible artist signature.

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.
