A beautiful Anthony Redmile large white composite marble bust of Napoleon Bonaparte as Caesar, dating from the last quarter of the 20th century.
Napoleon is shown with a laurel crown round his head, the bust is stamped AR to the reverse, and NAPOLÉON is inscribed below the bust.
The attention to detail throughout the piece is second to none and the figure is extremely lifelike.
This model is inspired after an example by Antoine-Denis Chaudet (French, 1763–1810), who, in 1799, carved the archetypal Napoleon Bonaparte portrait bust in marble. The Sevres porcelain factory then disseminated the image widely throughout the Empire, reproduced in a biscuit porcelain. There is a version with a laurel crown in the Louvre Museum, but Bonaparte is modelled wearing robes, unlike the example offered here.
