"Bronze Figure - Napoleon on Horseback - signed Claude"
Napoleon is illustrated in a victorious pose in the picture „Napoleon Bonaparte on Horseback“. He crosses the Alps at the Great St. Bernard Pass on the painting by Jacques-Louis David (1800). This picture is also described as “propaganda painting”, because Napoleon is illustrated some weeks before his victory over the Austrian troops. The picture is created during the second coalition war. The crossing over the Alps happened in another way in the reality. Napoleon stretches his right arm victoriously upwards. His horse raises the front hoofs. The detailed elaborated locks of the equine mane, the tail and the clothes of Napoleon are emphasized in the sculpture.
The bronze figures are created in the process of lost-wax casting. The sculptures are made in handicraft. The compliance of the strict quality instructions are the basic for the high quality of our products.
