White Carved Marble Figure of the Famous Napoleon with One Hand is His Jacket

$28,500per set


A white carved marble figure of the famous Napoleon with one hand in his jacket, on a gilt bronze mounted marble pedestal. Height 74" including pedestal. This sculpture depicts Napoleon and the famous pose with him standing straight up and one hand is his jacket. In fact, the one-hand-concealed stance can be traced back to the days of Roman togas and even to Greek statues dating from 350 B.C.E. More than one hundred years before Napoleon’s rise to power, it had returned to fashion and was considered a refined pose for a gentleman’s portrait. The famous pose can be traced back to Mozart or George Washington.
