1840: Napoleon Altarpiece

Napoleon Altarpiece

“Many popular Napoleon related items were produced during the years of the reign of Louis-Philippe (1830-1848), but few were genuine objects of worship in the sense of this small ivory altarpiece. It presents a triptych with a central scene of Napoleon’s marshals showing the rising sun of Austerlitz.”
