Napoleon. 1895. Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

Description: “Napoléon” was a submission to a competition for a poster to advertise a new biography of the emperor. Lautrec’s composition is relatively conservative in its drafting and naturalistic in its detail, yet it is infused with a characteristic sense of immediacy and unconventional symbolism: the red, white, and blue horses suggest the French tri-color and the soldiers’ costumes evoke Napoleon’s campaigns in North Africa and Europe. Though Lautrec had tempered his style to suit the academic tastes of the jury, the winner of the competition was Lucien Métivet who submitted an emblematic and heraldic design. Despite his third-place ranking, Lautrec was satisfied enough with his image to produce it in an edition of 100, without lettering, for an ever-growing market of collectors of fine-art lithographic prints.
