If you want more FIW paintings by Eugène Leliepvre detailing the individual uniforms of most units, you can find a selection by clicking on the link below :

There are a few others floating about on the net : a Google search using "Eugène Leliepvre Nouvelle France troupes françaises" will turn them up pretty quickly. Leliepvre was by no means the only military painter to document the appearance of Montcalm's army but I have always had a soft spot for his watercolours, despite their slightly old-fashioned quality which fans of the ultrarealistic style in vogue today will no doubt find quaint and comic book-like.
