About this artwork

From 1801 to 1805, the French painter Jacques-Louis Davis created a collection of five horse-riding depictions of Napoleon Bonaparte. The King of Spain was the one who requested these masterpieces. They showcase Napoleon riding his horse across the Alps via the Great St Bernard Pass back in May of 1800.

About the artist

Born in Paris in 1748, Jacques-Louis David grew into a leading figure of France's Neo-classical art scene. After tutelage under classicising artist Marie-Joseph Vien, David spent pivotal years in Rome (1775-80 and 1784-5). In 1783, he joined the Academy, earning recognition for works like 'The Oath of the Horatii' - noted for their stark design and theme. Also, his skillful portraiture won him acclaim. During the 1789 Revolution, David actively participated, becoming a parliament deputy and key player in abolishing the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture. His depictions of Napoleon in various roles glorified the French leader. Despite living in exile post-Napoleon's downfall in 1815, he influenced French arts significantly until his death in Brussels in 1825.
