EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a significant moment in history - the Marchand expedition's fierce battle at M'tila Voula in January 1897. Led by Jean-Baptiste Marchand, a brave French army officer, this extraordinary expedition embarked on an arduous journey across Africa from the mouth of the Congo to Fashoda (Kodok) in Sudan. The image showcases an encampment amidst the African wilderness during this perilous mission. In vivid color and intricate detail, we witness soldiers clad in military uniforms engaged in intense combat. With rifles and guns raised, they valiantly defend their position against unseen adversaries. The tricolour flag of France proudly flutters above them as a symbol of their nation's presence on foreign soil. Tents dotting the landscape provide temporary shelter for these courageous explorers who have ventured far from home. Each man plays his part with unwavering determination, embodying both strength and resilience. This lithograph serves as a testament to not only Marchand's leadership but also to the spirit of exploration that characterized 19th-century colonialism. It reminds us of the immense challenges faced by those who sought to expand their country's influence beyond its borders. As we gaze upon this historical artwork, we are transported back in time to witness a pivotal moment where men fought bravely for their ideals and ambitions amidst unfamiliar terrain. This remarkable print is not just an artistic representation; it encapsulates a chapter of human endeavor that shaped nations and defined
