Napoleon Crossing the St. Bernard

this painting is by Jacque Louis David shows Napoleon in his famous crossing of the Alps. this painting took two years to finish and was done in 1801. like most of Jacque louis david's paintings of Napoleon, this was a propaganda peice which is why i liked the painting because napoleon was a small man in real lifebut when you look at this painting he is charging ahead and shows how he is going to raise the moral of his troops to fight and cross the alps.
