The artist's description of the painting is pasted on the verso of the painting: 'The picture represents the last desperate effort of Napoleon to force the left centre of the allied army and turn their position. In the centre … are several battalions of the Imperial Guard, formed into one massive column, led on by Marshal Ney, who… is received in front by Captain Bolton’s Battery, while General Maitland’s Brigade of Guards attack the French on their right, and General Adams’ Brigade assail their left.
