"According to David’s biographer Etienne-Jean Delécluze, who was then his pupil, the unfinished portrait of Bonaparte was painted from life in a three-hour session. He reports that the day after the sitting, David was effusive, “smiling more than usual and in such a way as to let see the tumor of his upper jaw.” Often cited are his comments to his inquisitive pupils on Bonaparte’s physiognomy: “Oh! My friends what a handsome head he has! It’s pure, it’s grand, it’s beautiful like the antique!" …. "In short,” he said, “my friends, he’s a man to whom altars would have been erected in antiquity; yes, my friends, yes, my dear friends! Bonaparte is my hero!”
