Bataille de Poitiers, en octobre 732, Château de Versailles, 1837

Baron Charles Auguste Guillaume Steuben (April 18, 1788 – November 21, 1856), also Charles de Steuben, was a French painter active during the Napoleonic Era.

He briefly trained Gustave Courbet.[1]

At the behest of Pierre Fontaine in 1828 de Steuben painted La Clémence de Henri IV après la Bataille d'Ivry, depicting a victorious Henry IV of France at The Battle of Ivry.

De Steuben's Bataille de Poitiers, en octobre 732, painted between 1834 and 1837, shows the triumphant Charles Martel at the Battle of Tours (also known as the Battle of Poitiers).
