Description
Pierre-Jean David d’Angers (1788-1856) - Medallion, Napoléon Générale - Bronze (patinated) - Mid 19th century
France

Patinated bronze medallion made from the painting by Jean Antoine Gros “The Battle of the Arcole Bridge'' in which Napoléon Bonaparte was represented in his campaign in Italy before being crowned emperor.

David d'Angers, one of the 19th-century portraitist sculptors, was commissioned, for example, to create the pediment of the Pantheon in Paris.

Most of the time, David d'Angers did not work on commission, but instead carried out his works for those who deserved to be represented in order to remain forever and sent his wax moulds to the foundries.

It is a piece with a beautiful patina, with included support, which will decorate any corner of the house.

The pictures are part of the description.
