Introducing a spectacular work of art from the hands of the renowned French sculptor, E. Guillemin. Proudly presenting a distinguished large Napoleon statuette, standing confidently at a height of 31.5 cm, exuding an aura of regality and strength. It is more than just a statuette; it is a tribute to the skill and precision of the great sculptor.

The Napoleon statuette by E. Guillemin is a testament to exceptional craftsmanship. Crafted from top-quality bronze, this piece ensures longevity and steadfast beauty. What sets this figurine apart is the extraordinary attention to detail. The intricacies of Napoleon's attire, distinctive facial features and the meticulously executed bust design, give the statuette a breath of life and realism.

Emile C.H. Guillemin, the maestro behind this magnificent piece, needs no introduction. Guillemin (1841-1907), a man of many talents, learned his art from the artistic milieu of his father who was a proficient painter and sculptor. Furthermore, he honed his skills under the tutelage of the master sculptor Salmson, thus inheriting a rich legacy of the art form.

Guillemin, who began exhibiting his work at the esteemed Salon in 1870, finally gaining an honorable mention in 1897. Primarily a proponent of academic classicism, he was renowned for his biblical sculptures, oriental characters, and portrait busts of contemporaries. Perhaps he is most celebrated for his masterful depictions of small-sized figures of cavalrymen and conquistadors. This Napoleon statuette is another testament to Guillemin’s unparalleled finesse and precision, that is reflected in the expressiveness of the faces he sculpted and the top-notch workmanship of the French foundry F. Barbedienne.

It is important to note that some of these splendid pieces remained unsigned, adding an air of mystery and intrigue to their appeal. This Napoleon statuette, however, boasts the grace and refinement synonymous with Guillemin’s body of work. It is as much an investment in quality art as it is in a piece of history.
