Which army uniform is it?

Can you help me identify which army uniform this is? (see the attached photo of a painting).

My current best guess is that it is a french cavalry uniform from the early 1800 - maybe a Napoleonic hussar uniform. However, the colors and other details of the uniform does not seem to be correct :suspicious:

It could be "artistic freedom" on behalf of the painter - or my guess/source material could be wrong.

I hope you can point me in the right direction.

No problem.

The chassuers were not Hussars but the imperial guard Chassuers wore hussar dress to be special.
