Because of the tragic events in Orlando, we wanted to wait out of respect and piety, before we post the pictures of last Saturday's #LGBTIAQ #streetfair andersrum ist nicht verkehrt in Mariahilf - #Vienna.

Napoleon Bonaparte died #onthisday‬ in 1821. This cameo by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres depicts the ‘Apotheosis of Napoleon I’, his promotion to divinity.

Ingres' first portrait of Napoleon Bonaparte had been commissioned by the city of Liège in 1803. He was to paint Napoleon several more times during his career. In 1859, Napoleon III (a nephew of Bonaparte) commissioned the sculptor Adolphe David to carve a companion cameo to the largest surviving cameo from the classical world: the Grand Camée de la Chapelle Royale, now in the Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris.

Ingres made this design for David in the shape of the Grand Camée, based on his design for a ceiling in the Hôtel de Ville, Paris. The ceiling, executed by Ingres in 1853 (but destroyed by fire in 1871), showed the same subject as this drawing. Although David worked on this commission for 13 years, no suitable stone was ever found. The final cameo showed only the central group of figures http://ow.ly/4mYXDZ
