Napolon Wearing the Coronation Regalia of the King of Italy

Jean-Baptiste IsabeyProvenance - December 1852

Six months after the coronation in Paris, the Emperor was crowned King of Italy in Milan. Isabey executed this drawing in December 1852, at the time of Napolon IIIs coup detat. Napolon III was the son of Josphines daughter, Queen Hortense of Holland, and of Napolons brother, Louis, the King of Holland. This birth of the Second Empire in France provided inspiration for the artists sentimental souvenir (remembrance) of the First Empire.
