Giovanni Fattori

I think these both depict Montebello (1859) .
Fattori was an Italian painter of initially historical and military subjects. Specialising in camp scenes or scenes of marching and so forth rather than heroic action. Wiki here

  1. I have an Italian book about Montebello which confirms that the top picture is of Montebello and that the original is in the Museo Civico G Fattori in Livorno.
