Napoleonic Period Drawing of a Classical Figure

$2,450

About

This beautiful and sensitive drawing is done on hand made blue paper and is highlighted with white chalk. The work done as a study for a large allegorical painting is typical of the works from the time using neoclassical elements to tell a current tale designed to promote the emperor's goals of conquest in Europe and a world order most closely related to ancient Roman establishing order and prosperity. Many important artists of the time in France such as David worked in this style providing politicians and generals suitable art for their homes. The drawing is crisp and well-executed with a clear portraiture feeling to the face. The frame is vintage and is in good condition with a simple french matte. Under the matte line is an old collectors stamp and numerical notation
