by Jacques-Louis David (1748-1825), in the Musee National de Chateau de Malmaison
Initially commissioned by the king of Spain, the austere colors and regal composition of this heroic portrait of Napoleon represent not only the Emperor, but an artist who was a central figure of Neoclassicism. Napoleon and his army made it across the Alps through the Great St. Bernard Pass in May 1800, this composition shows a idealized view of that historic undertaking. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. Our replica European style, bright gold-toned, ribbed frame is cast in quality designer resin with an acanthus leaf and floret border that draws the eye toward the beautiful image.
