Napoleon Bonaparte was a French statesman and military leader who rose to prominence during the French Revolution and led several successful campaigns during the French Revolutionary Wars. He was Emperor of the French as Napoleon I from 1804 until 1814 and again briefly in 1815 during the Hundred Days. Jack Graves III is an American artist, born in 1988 in Jacksonville, Florida. He grew up surrounded by inspiration having an art dealer as a father, John Graves Jr., who founded 'The Collector's Exchange' in St. Augustine, FL in 1978, (today Graves International Art). At the age of 5, his family moved away from urban Jacksonville, Florida to rural Somerset, Virginia. There, he grew up in the country attending and graduating from Grymes Memorial School in 2003 winning the Art Departmental award. He then attended The Blue Ridge School for four years, an over 100 year old all-male boarding school, also winning the Art Departmental award there out of the entire student body in 2007. Upon high school graduation, he attended school abroad for a year studying art at the University of Newcastle, UK and then back to the United States to finish at Hampden-Sydney College, VA. He would be recognized for his art at both of these colleges. A large photograph portrait of Graves working in the college's art studio whilst an art student hangs today within the ground floor of the famous Bortz Library at Hampden-Sydney College. After college, Graves took his talents into the art world working in Charlottesville, VA. He mainly works in acrylic painting, but also some pen and ink works on paper.
