This is a small version of the painting of Napoleon's Coronation hanging in the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris. The large painting took two years to complete, 1806 and 1807. This picture was meant to be a propaganda piece. Its long, detailed title was meant to immortalize that event in history. Napoleon's parents never approved of his coronation of himself as Emperor of France, so they never attended the coronation ceremony. However, since this was a propaganda piece, it needed to show that his parents approved of him being emperor so they were added to the picture. (Middle, just left of Napoleon in the throne in the back). It was also thought that if Napoleon were portrayed as crowning himself, he would come off as full of himself so David painted Napoleon crowning his wife Josephine. There is a larger version of this painting at the Louvre Museum in Paris. - (GDC.024)Consecration of the Emperor Napoleon I and Coronation of the Empress Josephine - GDC.024
