FRANCE: Streetart Toulouse – Côte Pavée – “The Battle of Toulouse” by artist SNAKE

On the occasion of the commemoration of the Battle of Toulouse, April 10, 1814, an 80-meter long fresco was created by the artist SNAKE on avenue Raymond Naves, on the very spot where General Taupin, a French general of the Revolution and the Empire, was mortally wounded. This battle has fascinated historians, as it has provoked controversial debates on both sides of the Channel. The British claim victory, as the coalition army (English, Spanish, Portuguese) commanded by Viscount Wellington finally entered Toulouse on April 12, greeted by the cheers of the royalists. Besides the pictures of this great huge creation the photographer Julien Canadas made as well a short video.
