Napoleon as Caesar, a bust, after the antique by Canova, 1804.
In 1802 Napoleon brought the finest Italian neoclassical sculptor, Antonio Canova, to Paris to do a series of portrait marble sculptures of Napoleon.
After Napoleon saw one of the pieces, a marble relief with him wearing a laurel crown, he commissioned this large version.
As a standard these large busts are made much lighter, if you require more weight, please inform at time of ordering.
