This impressive equestrian bronze captures the legendary Emperor Napoléon riding triumphantly astride his favorite horse, Vizir. The sculptor is the celebrated general-cum-artist Jean-Baptiste Duchand de Sancey, an officer of Napoléon's horse artillery who put his knowledge of the equine figure to the test in the present bronze. He perfectly translates the majesty of Napoléon's mount in the piece, as well as the emperor's own grand and determined spirit. Wearing his familiar bicorne hat atop a strong brow, the famous Napoléon exudes the distinguished air and unwavering tenacity for which he is remembered.

The artistic achievements of Jean-Baptiste Duchand de Sancey are often overlooked because of his great military merit. Raised to the rank of officer in 1798, he led Napoléon's horse artillery at the Battle of Waterloo as a Colonel, and eventually earned the rank of General. Following a brilliant military career, he published several remarkable writings on the artillery and the art of war, which were published in 1843 in the French Spectateur Militaire. As a sculptor, he is best remembered for his representations of the emperor on horseback and in field dress, a theme that is beautifully realized in the present bronze.
