The importance of Napoleon Bonaparte´s role in European history is evident, and needs no further remarks. This famous and controversial character has produced an immense iconography.
Among the thousands of pictorial representations of Napoleon there is the famous painting by Delaroche depicting him in 1814 at the time of his first abdication. Here the Emperor appears in an unusual pose, deeply concerned by the surrounding circumstances. The extraordinary attention to detail displayed in this Delaroche's painting is now represented in sculpture. Delaroche's work has been very closely studied by Fernando Andrea to produce a stunning threedimensional version of the famous canvas.
This bronze is an outstanding piece of sculpture. Cast in the traditional lost wax bronze method in a very limited number, the sculpture would be a centerpiece of many collections.
