A fine example of a bronze bust of Napoleon Bonapart by French sculptor Jean Jacques (James) Pradier (1790-1852). Pradier was born in Geneva, Switzerland and moved to France to work with his brother in Paris, who was an engraver. He later became a member of the Academie des Beaux Artes and a professor at the Ecole des Beaux Artes, becoming well known for his neo-classical mythology sculptures. Some of his more famous sculpture works include the figures of Fame in the spandrels of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, and his twelve Victories inside the dome of the Invalides (Napoleon's tomb). This bronze is incised on verso “Pradier” on a spreading socle and stepped plinth with eagle decoration. Very good overall condition, with great patina, minor surface imperfections, and expected wear from age and use. Dimensions: 8 ¾” h x 3” w x 2 ½” d.
