This image of Napoleon Bonaparte crossing the Alps on his rearing white horse was reproduced frequently by American printmakers. The immense painting on which is was based was part of the estate of Joseph Bonaparte in Bordentown, New Jersey, from 1815 to about 1840 when it returned to France with Joseph’s daughter. The painting was exhibited frequently in Philadelphia and copies proliferated around New England.
