Napoleon - An Intimate Portrait


Preparatory drawing for “Psyche and Cupid”

Preparatory drawing for “Psyche and Cupid”

François Gérard - c. 1798

The neoclassic style of the First Empire often celebrated the beauties of the nude body, sometimes straining the limits of credibility. In this study for a painting that hangs in the Louvre, Baron Gérard pursues the perfection of physical beauty through line, composition, color and the delicate rendering of flesh.
