Napoleon Le Grand. Cloire Nationale.
Napoleon Le Grand. Cloire Nationale.
Victor Baltard del. E. Conquy sculp.
Rare engraving. Sheet 900 x 625mm (35½ x 24½"). A few repairs and creases from rolling.
A print of Napoleon's triumphal column in the Place Vendôme with colourful informational timeline. The Column was erected in 1810 but here showing the statue of Napoleon in military dress replaced by Louis-Philippe I (reigned 1830-46), because the first statue had been melted down at the Bourbon Restoration. The Paris Commune pulled down the whole column in 1871, but it was re-erected three years later with a copy of the original statue. The column was based on Trajan's Column in Rome, with scenes from Napoleon's career in a spiral up the column. Here the column is flanked by tables of events grouped by month rather than year. Different version see Ref: 36852
