EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the magnificent statue of Napoleon as Mars the Peacemaker, created by renowned Italian sculptor Antonio Canova. The image captures the grandeur of Apsley House in London, specifically highlighting the principal staircase adorned with this extraordinary masterpiece. Commissioned by Napoleon himself, this statue symbolizes his desire for peace and harmony amidst his military conquests. It depicts Napoleon holding a figure of Victory, representing his ambition to achieve triumph through peaceful means. The intricate details and expert craftsmanship of Canova are evident in every curve and expression captured in stone. After Napoleon's downfall in 1816, the statue found its way into the possession of the 1st Duke of Wellington, presented to him by Prince Regent (later George IV). This exchange serves as a powerful testament to both historical events and diplomatic gestures between nations. The photograph allows viewers to appreciate not only Canova's exceptional talent but also offers a glimpse into history itself. It invites us to reflect on Napoleonic times while marveling at the beauty and significance encapsulated within this remarkable sculpture. Nigel Corrie skillfully captures this momentous artwork within Apsley House, inviting us to immerse ourselves in its rich history and artistic brilliance.
