Notes

Summary:
Appointed official painter to the Emperor in December 1804, David was given the task of commemorating the Coronation festivities in four huge canvasses, only two of which were executed (the Distribution of the Eagles is at Versailles), This ceremony took place in the cathedral of Notre-Dame in Paris. David chose to show the episode following the actual consecration: Napoleon crowning Josephine while Pope Pius VII gives him his blessing. The action is only a small part of a composition conceived as an enormous group portrait containing over a hundred figures.
