Although I #detest #napoleon, I can’t help but admire his skill as a #propagandist, which is why I plan to have a statue of myself made in the image of #canova’s ‘#Mars the #peacemaker’ and have it installed in my #grand staircase! 😌😎💅🏽 Napoleon immediately took against this masterpiece of Canova’s – to the extent that he ordered it to be removed from public gaze – due to the fact that he was afraid the public would ridicule the contrast between him and the #statue, which bore no reference to the shorter & more #portly Napoleon of 1811; the First #dukeofwellington gave it pride of place in #apsleyhouse’s stairwell, however, it was shown very little respect by his guests, who hooked their #umbrellas on it! 😱😂❤️ #historylessonover #gold #gilding #bronze #nike #wellington #malenude #abs #washboardabs #chic #opulent #statelyhome #history #art #arthistory #antique #numberonelondon #picoftheday

Apsley House Cast Iron Railings 1830, Benjamin Dean Wyatt (1775-1852)  #apsleyhouserailings #castironrailings #benjamindeanwyatt #wyatt #apsleyhouse
The central designs on the dinner service plates were taken from illustrations by Denon, published in his account of his journey to Egypt during Bonaparte’s 1798 campaign, Voyage dans la Basse et la Haute Egypte (Paris 1802). #apsleyhouse #napoleon #josephine #dukeofwellington #egyptian #sèvres #porcelain #london
Centrepiece of the 'Egyptian Service', Sèvres porcelain factory 1810-12. It depicts the Temple of Karnak , Dendra and Philase and is 6.7 metres long. #sèvres #porcelain #apsleyhouse #napoleon #josephine #dukeofwellington #egyptian #london
'Egyptian Service’, hard-paste porcelain, painted in enamels and gilt, made at the Sèvres porcelain factory, France, 1810-12. A divorce gift from Napoleon to Josephine. She rejected it (the design was too severe for her) and in 1818 king Louis XVIII gave the service to the Duke of Wellington. #apsleyhouse #napoleon #josephine #dukeofwellington #egyptian #sèvres #porcelain #london

La colossale statua di Napoleone in veste di Marte pacificatore, scolpita da Canova, tra il 1802 ed il 1806, dopo la disfatta di Waterloo, fu acquistata dal governo britannico per la somma di 66mila franchi. Fu donata dal principe reggente al duca di Wellington nel 1817 ed il  pavimento di Apsley House venne appositamente rinforzato, per accomodare il peso della statua. #apsleyhouse #napoleon #napoleone #antoniocanova #dukeofwellington #storiedascoprire #wanderingwus #wwustours #wwutours #guidinginlondon #london#londra #londratourguide #guerrenapoleoniche #lovelondon #succedesoloalondra
