Description
Napoleon Bonaparte commissioned hundreds of medals to be struck to mark the course of his reign, commemorating everything from his conquests, successful treaties, and marriage to the introduction of the smallpox vaccination, an unsuccessful attempt on his own life, and the appropriation of Europe's artistic masterpieces. Beautifully illustrated with large color photographs, in a handsome edition limited to 1,000 copies, this visual history views Napoleon's reign through these rarely seen medallions, underscoring how his artists reproduced such works as the Venus de Medici and the four horses of St. Marks to glorify his conquests, and used classical models to clothe him with heroic attributes.
