Colonel Henry Paget is being comforted after the amputation of his leg. The scene shows a fictitious meeting between the Duke of Wellington and Paget shortly after his right leg had been amputated after the Battle of Waterloo in 1815.

Coene (a painter of genre and historical scenes) was a pupil of the Brussels Academy and five years after this picture was painted he became Professor, a role he held to great acclaim until his death.
