Napoleon - An Intimate Portrait


Sleeve of the dress coat of First Consul Bonaparte

Sleeve of the dress coat of First Consul Bonaparte

- c. 1800

The dress coat from which this sleeve was removed, after a waiter spilled sauce on it, was a gift to Napoléon from the City of Lyon. The family of the tailor who replaced the original kept the damaged sleeve. The rest of this coat was lost after Waterloo. Napoléon was notoriously frugal about clothes, often repairing pants, coats and shoes that others would have simply replaced.

Historical Provenance - The family of M. Le Chevalier, Napoléon’s tailor
