The circular painting, which is 112 x 10 meter depicts how the French Eastern Army under General Bourbaki put up one last vain struggle in January 1871 before the soldiers found themselves surrounded by German troops in the French Jura. The agreement on February 1 of the internment of Bourbaki's French army set in motion the largest ever intake of refugees into Switzerland. Within three days, about 87,000 soldiers crossed the Swiss border.
