Charlet's prints often drew public attention to the situation of veterans of the Napoleonic wars, such as these two ex-soldiers. As La Combe observes, the lancer on the right seems to express resignation, but the grenadier to the left seems more angry than merely courageous.

The printer is identified beneath the image at right.

Pictorial works produced by transferring images by means of a matrix such as a plate, block, or screen, using any of various printing processes. When emphasizing the individual printed image, use "impressions." Avoid the controversial expression "original prints," except in reference to discussions of the expression's use. If prints are neither "reproductive prints" nor "popular prints," use the simple term "prints." With regard to photographs, prefer "photographic prints"; for types of reproductions of technical drawings and documents, see terms found under "reprographic copies."
