First Consul Bonaparte standing in front of Malmaison
Jean-Baptiste Isabey - 1802
Napolťon is depicted here, perhaps for the first time, in a characteristic pose that would become his signature stance. Josťphine purchased Malmaison early in their marriage, and spent lavish amounts of money making it a beautiful and comfortable residence. It was a place where Napolťon could truly relax.
Historical Provenance - Joachim Muratís collection
