    Schnorr von Carolsfeld was a leading member of the Nazarenes, a group of Northern artists who favored biblical and erudite literary themes and adopted a clear, linear manner reminiscent of that of their Renaissance idols. This large, highly finished sheet was a study for a wall painting in the Munich Residenz, destroyed in World War II. The subject is the military victory of Charles the Great over the Lombards in 774.
