Here is a full view of today’s #WhatIsItWednesday puzzle: Jean Baptiste Edouard Detaille’s “The Dragoon,” 1896, on view in the 1962 Building. Executed late in Detaille’s career, this composition shows the artist’s talent for conveying the facts and character of everyday military life. A French dragoon in full uniform is shown cantering his horse along a lonely forest path in winter. [Jean Baptiste Edouard Detaille (French, 1848–1912). “The Dragoon,” 1896.
