Bonaparte, First Consul, Putting Away His Sword after the General Peace

Dublin Core

Title

Bonaparte, First Consul, Putting Away His Sword after the General Peace

Description

The engraving celebrates the peace treaties of 1801 and 1802. The lack of perspective in this image reflects the vision that Napoleon wanted the French to have when they thought about his actions. Making peace proved to be one of Napoleon’s more popular decisions.
