A devoted admirer and supporter of Napoleon Bonaparte, Jacques-Louis David (1748 – 1825) painted the general with larger-than-life heroism, drama and color in “Napoleon Crossing the St. Bernard Pass.” Dominating French Revolution artwork, David was so impressed with Napoleon’s personality that he immortalized him in numerous paintings. A knight in Napoleon’s Legion of Honor until the military leader’s fall, David escaped to Brussels, continuing to paint and teach young artists.
