This was the study for an engraving ordered by Napoléon to celebrate the first five years of the Empire and its many achievements. The large, single sheet of paper on which it was drawn was specially manufactured for the piece, and its size is unusual for the period.

Historical Provenance - From the Marshal Soult’s collection
