A scene with a captain (he bears the cross of French Royal Order of Saint Louis) and his soldiers resting at forest edge. According to their uniforms, they belong to 6th Infantry Regiment of "garde royale" from the late period of Bourbon Restoration (1825-1830). Their "regiment's dog" - a puddle - has sniffed at something eatable at the nearby grove and is sitting up to beg.
This painting is a very qualitative and early work of well-known French artist, who was especially known for his scenes from military life, Hippolyte Bellange.

Hippolyte (Joseph-Louis-Hippolyte) Bellange (1800 Paris - 1866 Paris) began his art studies at the age of 16 in the studio of Jean-Antoine Gros (there he made acquaintance with his friend Nicolas-Toussant Charlet). In 1818 he became a member of Parisian École des Beaux-Arts, in 1824 he obtained a Medal of 2nd degree there. In 1834 he became Chevalier of the Legion of Honour, in 1861 - Chevalier of Belgian Order of Leopold. From 1837 to 1854 Bellange was conservator of the Rouen Museum.
At the urging of Charlet, Bellange first turned to lithography (in total he made over 500 works in this technique). Progressively he turned to oil paintings, most of all specializing on military scenes. With growing success of these paintings he lost interest in lithography, after 1834 there are only few works in this technique.
Works of his are to see in most important French and international museums (a.o. in the Louvre and Versailles).
