Napoleon with 100 faces

FRENCH LANGUAGE The philosopher Hegel thought he saw the “Spirit straddling the world” when he saw Napoleon passing through Jena at the head of his troops. But how can we represent a myth, which is also contemporary, of the rise of propaganda and anti-propaganda? Many artists of the time tried to draw the Emperor, emphasizing the hero or the devil, while trying not to forget the man. One hundred selected portraits, covering the epic period from 1769 to 1821. An essential iconographic contribution. 216 pages French language Du cerf publishing
