-The ceremony lasted 3 hours
and the highlight of it was the
crowning
-The crown was a replica of
the one used by Charlemange
www.notesolution.com
-the painting itself was 6 by 10 meters
-This is an excellent example of Neo-classical paintings--the light falling solely on Napoleon,
and a fairy admirable image, the crowning is normally done at a higher stage but he did it a lower
one to be different
-Center stage is usually taken by the Pope but Napoleon took it
-Napoleon tried to bring back the role of the Catholic Church since the revolution

-This was represented on the French one hundred dollar note
-Exhibited in a salon
-FIgure of Liberty--a woman carrying a tattered flag
-On left--Bourgeois in top hat
-On right--Proletariat
-This painting influenced Hugo
Théodore Géricault, The Raft of the
Medusa (1819) (Neo-classical)
- Historical event:
1- Shipwreck of the frigate La
Meduse in 1816
2- Captain Hugues Duroy de
Chaumareys
3- 149 sailors and soldiers on
the raft
4- The day of the rescue: 15 people

www.notesolution.com
-the situation turned fatal, the ships captain was sentenced to 3 years fro his
irresponsibility, and Gericault interviewed 2 survivors who he painted
-There is some hope in reaching for the flag
-Emotions of despair, anguish, and it is animal-like
-colors of France
-the novelty of the painting was not well recognized but the style was
-the black person was to show his view
against slavery
-Romantic elements:
Nature (the sea) = focal point
Depictions of strong emotions
Symbolic representation of France
Political subtext
Images dÉpinal: Apothéosis of
Napoléon
-the name images d’Épinal comes from the name of
the first printer of this series of popular prints, which
dates back to the end of the 17th century
-Jean-Charles Pellerin lived in the village of Épinal, in
the Vosges mountains of France
-he had the idea of producing a series of popular
images, dealing mostly with religion, history or
popular stories
-the illustrations were sold throughout the French
countryside by traveling salesmen, known ascolporteurs
-the differences between neoclassical portraiture and
popular imagery are obvious in terms of quality and style
BUT many of the symbolic representations remain the
same: the eagle, the laurel wreath, the sword, the typical
uniform
Images dÉpinal: Napoléon touching the
plague victims
