This life-size portrait of Napoleon, painted when he was aged around 44, shows him wearing the blue uniform with red facings, gold epaulettes, white waistcoat and white breeches of a French General, and black Napoleon boots. He wears the sash and star of the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honour and the croix d’officier of the same Order, together with the Iron Crown of the Order that he had established in 1805, which hangs from his button hole.
