“Bonaparte Visiting the Silk Manufacturers of Rouen”

“Bonaparte Visiting the Silk Manufacturers of Rouen”

Jean-Baptiste Isabey - 1802

Passionate about encouraging French industry, Napoléon frequently visited factories, showing an interest in their products and manufacturing techniques, giving prizes and purchasing goods for his palaces. Here he is introduced to an old man who worked in the factory with indefatigable zeal for 53 years. The Consul would reward the man with an annual pension of 400 Francs.
