Inspired by "Napoleon Crossing the Alps" by Jacques-Louis David

“Napoleon Crossing the Alps” (also known as “Napoleon at the Saint-Bernard Pass” or “Bonaparte Crossing the Alps;” listed as “Le Premier Consul franchissant les Alpes au col du Grand Saint-Bernard”) is the title given to the five versions of an oil on canvas equestrian portrait of Napoleon Bonaparte painted by the French artist Jacques-Louis David between 1801 and 1805. Initially commissioned by the King of Spain, the composition shows a strongly idealized view of the real crossing that Napoleon and his army made across the Alps through the Great St. Bernard Pass in May 1800.
