About This Piece
The Art
The heroism, drama and pageantry of Napoleon Bonaparte crossing St. Bernard Pass in the Alps, expressed in fierce movement and strong colors, are visualized here though the eyes of ardent admirer, Neoclassicist Jacques-Louis David (1748 – 1825). The preeminent painter of the French Revolution, David, granted a single portrait sitting with Napoleon, was so enthralled by the general’s personality that he glorified him in numerous paintings. In 1802, Napoleon made David a knight in his Legion of Honor.

This art print displays sharp, vivid images with a high degree of color accuracy. A member of the versatile family of art prints, this high-quality reproduction represents the best of both worlds: quality and affordability. Art prints are created on paper similar to that of a postcard or greeting card using a digital or offset lithography press.

The Artist
French Neo-Classical painter Jacques-Louis David (1748-1825) was the most prominently influential artist of his time and the only great master to emerge between the Rococo and the Romantic era. An active revolutionary with Robespierre, David gained prominence with Napolean’s rise to power when he became the official court painter and literally defined the style of the era. Famous for his Empire style, he featured warm Venetian colors in a rebellion against Rococo fantasy which resulted in innovative compositional departures. After the Bourbon monarchy reclaimed the throne, he was exiled to Brussels where he took on many students and continued to paint.
