Napoleon I (1769-1821) crowned himself Emperor of the French and created an empire that covered most of western and central Europe. He was the greatest military genius of his time. Napoleon’s armies crushed one foe after another until he seemed invincible. This exquisite sculpture of the Emperor embodies all facets of the masterful sculpting talents of internationally acclaimed sculptor Ron Tunison. Measuring 14” in height, including the solid wood base with engraved brass plaque, and 11” long, Napoleon sits astride his Arabian mount Marengo. Cold cast bronze, numbered 67/350. Accompanied by certificate of authenticity signed by Tunison.

Ron Tunison (1947 – 2013) was born in Richmond Hill, N.Y., and was a graduate of the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. He was a scholarship student at the NYC National Academy where he continued his sculpting studies. He went on to become an internationally acclaimed sculptor of nine heroic bronze monuments: "General W. Crawford," near Little Round Top on the Gettysburg Battlefield, the “Friend to Friend Masonic Memorial" on Steinwehr Ave., the bas-relief "Delaware State Memorial" on Taneytown Road, and "The Gettysburg Civil War Women's Memorial" at Evergreen Cemetery. On the Antietam National Battlefield is Tunison's "Irish Brigade Monument." "The Bivouac" is at the entrance to the Civil War Soldier's Museum at Pamplin Historical Park near Petersburg, Va. "The Delaware Continentals" heroic size bronze of three advancing Revolutionary War soldiers stands atop a twenty-five foot granite pedestal in front of Legislative Hall at Dover, Delaware. At Ringgold Gap in Atlanta, Ga., is Ron's life-size General Patrick Cleburne. Dedication ceremonies for “General John Barry, U.S. Naval Commander”, took place May 10th, 2014 at U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD.  Ron was the entrepreneur behind his own company Historical Sculptures, where he sculpted smaller statues.   [sl]

NOTE: We do not have the original packing box for this statue; given that it has easily bendable/breakable parts (sword, horse's reins), it would be preferable to pick this item up in the shop or at one of the militaria shows we attend during the year.  We will, though, ship upon request and pack it as carefully as we can. Extra shipping will be required due to weight and cost of packing materials.
