After the original painting by Demarne and Dunouy presented in 1808, listed at the Historical Gallery of Versailles MV1706 and exhibited today at the Fontainebleau Museum.

This engraving listed Inv.Grav 6570 was designed by painter E.C. Lambinet (1815-1877) and engraved by Pilinski Adam (1810-1887), a Polish engraver who took refuge in France in 1830.

In order to demonstrate his power, Napoleon did not go to Rome to be crowned Emperor, it was Pope Pius VII who was brought to Paris. Napoleon welcomed him in the forest of Fontainebleau, on horseback wearing hunting clothes, in order to make him believe in the fortuitous nature of the meeting.
