ABOUT THIS IMAGE.
In this painting, it is my desire to recognize Jean Louise David (a great painter and a French revolutioner) for his beautiful paintings of Napoleon. My painting, "Vision," is a result of my love of history and inspiration by David's work.
Napoleon Bonaparte is shown here making a decision to cross the Alps.
Napoleon asked David to paint him as a leader with a vision, rather than a tough general.
Napoleon Bonaparte (French: Napoleon Bonaparte, Italian: Napoleone Buonaparte; born 15 August 1769, died 5 May 1821) was a French military and political leader who rose to prominence during the latter stages of the French Revolution and its associated wars in Europe.
As Napoleon I, he was Emperor of the French from 1804 to 1814. He implemented a wide array of liberal reforms across Europe, including the abolition of feudalism and the spread of religious toleration. His legal code in France, the Napoleonic Code, influenced numerous civil law jurisdictions worldwide. Napoleon is remembered for his role in leading France against a series of coalitions in the Napoleonic Wars. He won the majority of his battles and seized control of most of continental Europe in a quest for personal power and to spread the ideals of the French Revolution. Widely regarded as one of the greatest commanders in history, his campaigns are studied at military academies worldwide. He remains one of the most studied political and military leaders in all of history.
