Napoléon Bonaparte abdicated in Fontainebleau
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
- Delaroche seems to have taken his inspiration for the pose from two contemporary engravings, one, a lithograph Burdet, after Raffet, Napoléon 1812, illustrated in Anquetil and Burette's l'Histoire de France (Paris, 1838), and the other, a vignette on wood by Loutrel, after Horace Vernet, Première abdication de Napoléon Ier à Fontainebleau, illustrated in Laurent de l'Ardèche's l'Histoire de l'Empereur Napoléon (Paris, 1839).
