Lead mine study on paper. Signed in the lower right corner Grimaldi. An oval depicts an officer of the Batteries on horseback charging; at the base coats of arms and military triumphs. The knight's uniform refers to the Carlo Alberto period, around 1845. It is a study by Grimaldi commissioned to him, probably for a print or publication, by the Voloire Regiment, or rather the body of the "Horse Batteries", the particularly mobile artillery units, used in rapid support to the actions of the other units. Stanislao Grimaldi, Count of Poggetto, of Turin, was the official painter of Vittorio Emanuele II, superintendent of the Albertina Academy in Turin and known as an illustrator of Risorgimento battles. The drawing is presented in a frame.
