Story of this Masterpiece by F.H. Tensi

Created in 1890.

The Ascent of the Knight Emile Julhes. Commercial air travel was still a few years away but mankind defied gravity nonetheless with balloons. Emile Julhes, Capitano Areonauta, was one of the dauntless riders of the clouds, who obviously was not a fan of hot air ballooning but used a lighter than air gas balloon. This was typical for the time, because of the perceived danger of burning something to provide heat and thus lift the balloon.

Gas balloons were favored over hot air balloons they were able to fly higher, further and more economically. The altitude was controlled with ballast weights that were dropped if the balloon got too low. In order to land some lifting gas was vented through a valve.

No further information about Emile Julhes has survived, but this lithograph by F.H. Tensi celebrated the fearless captain of the air and erected a memorial in his honor.
