Napoleon Entering Cairo is an exquisitely rendered bronze and ivory sculpture by Jean-Leon Gerome from 1897. 16.5 inches high statue was made as a smaller version of a larger bronze statue. Gerome portrayed his subject in the gilt bronze and ivory medium known as chryselephantine. The sculpture is now available at Rau Aniques for the price of $198,000.

This sculpture is based on Gerome’s captivating bronze sculpture, which was exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1897, and subsequently bought by the French government for the Galerie du Luxembourg. This work is an amazing historical reference as well as example of neo-classic revival in the 19th century that has since never been better. [M.S. Rau Antiques]
