Magnificent Large French 19th Century Painting of Napoleon Exiled to Elba

Item Number: 174MP

Magnificent large French 19th century painting of Napoleon being left at His exile, with His men and their supplies. A boy, barefoot, seemingly a native of their place of arrival, is carrying the colors hanging from a sword in scabbard. An older boy in the center is perched on a rock, watching their ship sail away. Napoleon and His men are watching the ship that left them in exile sail away under full sail. One man is forlorn, with his head buried in his folded arms, another has his left arm raised, as if to be throwing up his arm in disgust,  another has both arms raised, one holding his chapeau de gendarme hat, in a gesture of farewell to the ship. One of the others is just sitting, in a pensive pose, as if to be considering their lot.  The obviously oldest man, bald with white mustache, is just resting, weary from the journey, and another sitting, just scratching his forehead, as if to be thinking, “How could this have happened?” On the right side of the painting in the background is a native man wearing a hat. Oil on canvas, in the original gold leaf frame, with Napoleon “N” framed in leaves at each corner, with large carved eagle at center top. About the Artist. The painting is signed by 19th century artist Louis Bauderon, and dated 1866.  The painter was born in Paris in 1809, and studied with the well-known French artist Eugene Delacroix.  Bauderon  exhibited much of his work since 1839, at the ‘Salon de Paris’ . He is most well-known for his portraits and scenes of War. Many of his battle paintings have been collected and preserved by the Museum of Versailles.  Prince Czatoryski of the Polish aristocracy was a well-known collector of Bauderon’s works as well.
