The Surrender of Yorktown by Louis-Nicolas van Blarenberghe, 1786 is a French perspective of the Yorktown surrender. This is a replica of the Comte de Rochambeau’s copy of a painting done for King Louis XVI. It emphasizes the British soldiers, in red, parading in humiliating surrender at Yorktown before their French enemies, decked in blue. The Americans, to the left of the British with backs toward the viewer, appear secondary. In their global war, the French were far more concerned with defeating their historic enemies, the British, than with assisting Americans in winning independence.
