Bonaparte Visiting the Hospital in Jaffa

Dublin Core

Title

Bonaparte Visiting the Hospital in Jaffa

Description

This undated print shows Bonaparte visiting a hospital in Jaffa. Of classical proportions, this image is centered on Bonaparte, who appears to be bringing order to an otherwise disorderly and chaotic scene. However, Napoleon’s actual interest was limited, far less than this print would suggest. In fact, he ordered that poison be given to men too ill with plague to be transported.
