Painted by one of the (surely known) French artists of the early 19th century, this work is a study for a large-scale (perhaps unfinished?) oil painting with a scene of an intimate dialogue between Napoleon I and Pope Pius VII (CLICK HERE), which took place in 1812 or 1813 in Palace Fontainebleau by Paris (the Pope was confined at the Palace Fontainebleau between 1812 and 1814). A tale circulates that, during their meeting, Napoleon threatened the Pope (and this episode is documented in our study scene) to use his power to bring down the Roman Catholic Church. According to the same narrative, the Pope replied to Napoleon's threats with a mild smile as follows: "Two hundred Popes before me did not manage to do so. Why would you, of all people, succeed in it?".

Our images nr.6-8 show several known paintings of the similar subject matter.
