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.

The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.

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.

Dull
Makes quite a statement in husband's bar, but...the colors are far more muted than they appear online.

I saw this print framed in a catalogue but they discontinued the size I needed. I had the perfect frame for this and was glad to find the selection at art.com. I have antique plates portraying himself and Josephine and this print is perfect to display on the wall with these.
