Paul Delaroche (1797-1856) studied painting in the studio of Baron Gros, a painter instrumental in creating Bonaparte’s legend. Active in the period between the collapse of the School of David and the emergence of Manet and Modernism in the 1850s, Delaroche has largely been forgotten and yet, in post-Revolutionary France, through the fall of Napoleon, the Restoration and the July Monarchy, this painter strongly established the prestige of historical genre.
