Price:   $ 18,500.00
Reviews

Bronze: Napoleon In Exile, by Marius Jean Antonin Mercie, c.1880.  This is the largest of the Mercie series of the Emperor, a heroic figure of Napoleon on Elba contemplating the loss of Empire in 1814, a catastrophe symbolized by the fallen eagle at his feet. A master at catching the emotion of the moment, Mercie is recognized as one of the great artists of his time and original examples of his work are scarce and highly desirable.  Among his most admired examples is the life size figure of David in the Musee d´┐ŻOrsay; Le Souvenir, a marble statue for the tomb of Mme Charles Ferry, and monuments to Meissonier and Adolph Thiers.  This magnificent bronze of Napoleon is 34 inches high
