'Pont Napoleon' in Aigle - etching 18x27cm'85, created and printed by Hubertine with 2 plates

This historic bridge is situated close to Hubertine's Studio.

Indeed Napoleon Bonaparte crossed this narrow river with all his soldiers and warrior horses on his way to the mountains of Saint-Gotthard close to Hubertine's house!

Today the same bridge is still used for normal traffic....

Hubertine created the etching on 2 plates and printed it herself.

 

Franç: Ce pont historique est situé près de la maison d'Hubertine.

Napoléon Bonaparte a effectivement passé par là avec toute son armée vers le Gotthard. Il s'est rendu ensuite vers le Nord, passant par la France, Hollande, La Pologne jusqu'en Russie.
