Napoleon - An Intimate Portrait


Medici-style vases

Medici-style vases

Louis-François Jeannest - c. 1811-1812

With the demand for bronze to cast cannons, large-scale artworks in this alloy of tin and copper were rarely made during the time. These two are the only known bronze vases of the period on this scale. Depicted in a classical motif, they represent Napoléon’s marriage to Marie-Louise and the King of Rome’s birth in 1811. Napoléon’s eagle, bee and heroic symbolism feature prominently, as well.
