SOLD

NOW SOLD.......................This large Rare Masterpiece " Valley of Death" shows the infamous charge of the Light Brigade.The Painting shows Lord Cardigan who led the charge which occurred during the Battle of Balaclava on October 25, 1854 during the Crimean War. It is best remembered in the famous poem entitled The Charge of the Light Brigade by Lord Tennyson, whose lines "Into the Valley of Death rode the 600" have made the charge a symbol of warfare both at its most reckless and courageous.Lucan received an order from the army commander Lord Raglan stating that "Lord Raglan wishes the cavalry to advance rapidly to the front and try to prevent the enemy carrying away the guns. " The order was carried by Captain Nolan who may have added to the orders.In the painting he is in the foreground having just been hit. The charge was made by the Light Brigade of the British cavalry, consisting of the 4th and 13th Light Dragoons, 17th Lancers (MOTTO DEATH OR GLORY ), and the 8th and 11th Hussars, under the command of Major General the Earl of Cardigan. Together with the Heavy Brigade comprising the 4th Royal Irish Dragoon Guards, the 5th Dragoon Guards, the 6th Inniskilling Dragoons and the Scots Greys, commanded by Major General J Yorke-Scarlett, . Overall command of the cavalry resided with the Lord Lucan.His famous great grandson is still missing !!!!!! Cardigan survived the battle.The painting also shows a rough-haired terrier named Jenny who went all through the charge of the Light Brigade, where she was wounded by a splinter of shell in the neck. She returned to England with the regiment and at Dundalk Colonel de Salis gave her the collar which is still in the Officer's mess. On the collar are the five clasps awarded to her for war service at the Alma, Balaclava, Inkerman, Sebastopol and Central India. She embarked with the regiment for India and marched with it daily until after the action on the 14th of August 1858. Jenny was drowned while crossing the river Chambal in September of that same year, the current proving too strong for her.......................
