Early 19th Century Framed Napoleon Medallion by Bertrand Andrieu

About the Item

This early 19th-century French round cast pewter medallion, a masterpiece by Bertrand Andrieu (1761-1822), captures the Napoleonic era's essence. The laurel-crowned Napoleon, reminiscent of Roman emperors, symbolizes imperial grandeur. Andrieu's artistry is evident in the piece's intricate details, showcasing his mastery of medal design. Framed by a hand-carved wood frame mimicking rope, it adds sophistication to the composition. Bertrand Andrieu's influence on early 19th-century French art is profound. His engravings and medals, documenting the French Revolution and Napoleonic era, shaped the visual narrative of the time. An identical bronze copy resides in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, underscoring Andrieu's artistic significance, and solidifying his enduring impact. Andrieu's work finds a place among esteemed art collections worldwide.
