Napoleon - An Intimate Portrait


Large wooden plaque used at the coronation

Large wooden plaque used at the coronation

Designed by Jacques-Louis David. Manufactured by Jacob - 1804

Of the 10 coats of arms designed as supporting accents for the red velvet that surrounded the nave of Notre-Dame Cathedral, only one remains. Surrounding the Imperial Eagle is the Collier (ceremonial necklace) of the Legion of Honour. Modeled after those used by Charlemagne, the staff on the left portrays the hand of justice giving a benediction and the scepter on the right portrays Charlemagne, the first emperor of the west, on his throne. At the top is the crown of the Empire and below it is drapery embroidered with bees.

Historical Provenance - Charles Marchal collection
