Portrait of Jacques Cathelineau (1759-1793), generalissimo of the Catholic and Royal Army during the War in the Vendee (1793-1796). Also known as the "Saint of Anjou", Cathelineau liked to lead his men from the front, a habit that cost him dearly when he was mortally wounded by a French Republican sharpshooter during the Battle of Nantes.

Oil on canvas by Anne-Louis Girodet de Roussy-Trioson, commissioned at the behest of King Louis XVIII of France, 1816.

Museum of Art and History, Cholet.
