History:
This toile represents the signature of the treaty of Amiens on March 27 1802 marking France’s victory over England. For the first time in a long time, peace prevails in Europe. Bonaparte is Consul. The optimistic designer of this toile thinks that this time of peace will last: he shows soldiers sitting by their tents playing cards and the ‘Republic’, symbolized by a woman on a throne, ordering the woman to destroy the arrows.
In Egypt Bonaparte, victorious once again, offers a limited independence to Mourad-Bey and to the Mameluks. After the constitution of year X, the Consul presents the members of the new assembly to France.
