We know no other available for sale, and it is in perfect original condition. This plate comes from a castle in the department of oise. It is the illustration of the famous painting of David Bonaparte crossing the Grand Saint Bernard. It is an equestrian portrait of napoleon bonaparte then first consul, realized by jacques-louis david between 1800 and 1803. Napoleon is depicted crossing the Grand Saint Bernard pass by the reserve army, an episode that marks the beginning of the second Italian campaign. David painted five versions of this portrait, the first of which was commissioned by the king of Spain, Charles IV. It has been in the Musée National du Château de Malmaison since 1949. The next three were commissioned by the first consul for propaganda purposes and were the first official portraits of napoleon. They adorn the château de saint-cloud (since 1816 in the château de charlottenbourg in berlin), the library of the hôtel des invalides (since 1837 in the musée national du château de versailles), and the palace of the cisalpine republic in milan (since 1834 in the musée du belvédère in vienna). The last version has no patron and was kept by david until his death (entered in 1979 at the national museum of the château de versailles, since 2017 it has been exhibited at the louvre abou dabi). The five versions of the painting are large and of similar dimensions (approximately 2.6 × 2.2 meters). Bonaparte is depicted wearing the uniform of a general-in-chief, wearing a gold braided bicorne, armed with a Mamluk-style saber and draped in a cloak puffed up by the wind rushing through its folds.
