A Bust Portrait of the Emperor Napoléon I All’antica, attributed to Lorenzo Bartolini

After Antoine-Denis Chaudet (1763 – 1810), Carrara, circa 1808 – 1814.
This fine marble bust portrait of the French emperor Napoléon Bonaparte (1769 – 1821), depicted in antique dress All’antica, was most likely carved in the Carrara workshops supervised by Lorenzo Bartolini (1777 – 1850) between 1808 and 1814. The portrait appears inspired by a full-length bronze statue of Napoleon depicted ‘as Caesar’, that was conceived by the sculptor Antoine-Denis Chaudet (1763 – 1810), circa 1808.
