Napoleon Bonaparte’s triumphal entry into Milan in May 1796 occurred during a military campaign which saw the rapid conquest of much of the Italian peninsular. Bellangé was commissioned to provide an illustration of the event for a biography following Napoleon’s death in 1821. However, this oil sketch was probably painted a little later and in preparation for a larger picture which was not realised.
