Vernet was a member of a prominent family of French painters. His father was a well-known marine painter, but Carle rose to fame during the Empire with his drawings of the Italian campaign and his paintings: "The Battle of Marengo" and "Morning of Austerlitz". During the Restoration he was popular as a lithographer and painter of dogs, horses, racing and scenes of the hunt. His son, Émile Jean Horace Vernet, 1789-1863 went on to become one of the most popular military painters of the 19th century.
