Large-scale, snow covered war scene, depicting the retreat of Napoleon's army from Moscow. In the centre of the composition is a group of soldiers huddled together between the frozen trunk of a tree and a broken cart; standing within the group is the subject of the painting, Marshal Ney, who wears a bicorne hat. He is forward-facing and armed, his head turned to the right and his hand touching the shoulder of a wounded soldier.
