A view of a fireworks display held on the Place de Grève (now Place de l'Hôtel-de-Ville) to celebrate Napoleon's coronation in 1804. To symbolise Napoleon's crossing of the Alps in 1799, an artificial Mont St Bernard was built on the Place de Grève (a square where public executions were carried out). Troops march up the 'mountain', on which is a huge figure of Napoleon on a rearing white horse, based on David's famous painting. An illuminated warship sits on the Seine and a crowd watches from the far bank of the river.
