FEAR THE FRENCH
The curation of Antoine-Jean Gros
Napoleon Bonaparte the French to Fear
Purpose
Antoine-Jean Gros. An amazing individual who managed to
shift the perspective of a man who had the people of France
wrapped around his fingers. In his paintings he showed what
this self proclaimed savior of France truly was. A figure of fear.
Although many loved and honored him as a leader he
committed many atrocities that I can't over look. It all boils
down to perspective
The Battle of Eylau
This piece is one of the many piece I
brought to the gallery that illustrate the
art of war. In my opinion war is the
pinnacle of fear, and this painting by
Antoine-Jean Gros illustrates the rated R
impact that war brings, and as you look
through the piles of bodies and take in
the smoking house in the distance you
have this realization war is scary. Very
scary. It really brings perspective to war,
especially if look at it contextually. A
Frenchman bringing truth to the people
while still staying in guidelines given to
him. Once I saw this I knew I had to
have it in my gallery.
The Battle of Abukir
This is another piece painted by
Frenchman Antonie-Jean Gros in 1806.
No stranger to tragedy my friend
continues to bring. However this photo is
in the midst of the action. As the battle
around takes place there sits Napoleon
who in my opinion really represents the
harbinger of death. An untouched figure
standing in the crossfire. Truly a fearful
figure. The perspective of this piece really
not only showed me the ruthlessness of
war but the dominance and almost
invincibility of Napoleon. If I was
ignorant to Napoleons history I think my
whole view on him would be quite
different
Surrender of Madrid
When you look at the Surrender of
Madrid you get to start to empathize
with these people who are seemingly
begging for their lives as the stern
figure stands over them dictating life
and death for these poor individuals.
Antonie-Jean Gros is a genius. He's
managed to shift the attention towards
these fallen individuals, but also
managed to isolate this figure of
death. I just think it's so interesting
how all of his paintings he shows this
guy who is loved by his people and
becomes the Emperor of France as
this figure of fear.
Bonaparte at the Pont d'Arcole
When you look at the Surrender of
Madrid you get to start to empathize
with these people who are seemingly
begging for their lives as the stern
figure stands over them dictating life
and death for these poor individuals.
Antonie-Jean Gros is a genius. He's
managed to shift the attention towards
these fallen individuals, but also
managed to isolate this figure of
death. I just think it's so interesting
how all of his paintings he shows this
guy who is loved by his people and
becomes the Emperor of France as
this figure of fear.
Napoleon Bonaparte Visiting the
Plague Stricken Victims in Jaffa
This piece is the darkest I think. The
others focus on war an image, but this
illustrates who Napoleon was when he
wasn't in the publics eye. During
Napoleons war runs he actually
poisoned 32 different people to test
different poisons. Many of the 32 died
others forced to lived with different
types of handicaps as poison does leave
a mark permanently. The whole photo
really shows the perspective that this
man isn't the holy savior, he's a
monster. A war hungry monster, and a
good one at that.
The Coronation of Napoleon
Bonaparte
This giant painting wasn't painted by
Antoine-Jean Gros, but by fellow French
painted Jacques-Louis David. The
reason I decided to add this was
perspective. Napoleon did commit many
atrocities, and was responsible for the
deaths of dare I say millions. However,
the reality is Napoleon is regarded as the
greatest leaders France has ever had.
After returning from exile he was met by
cheers and hugs from his French
brothers and sisters. People loved this
guy. He was even close to the Pope. At
the end of the day it really is all about
perspective.
This is my pamphlet for the gallery
