Napoleon Sarkozy

Tonight I have a manipulated caricature of French President Nicolas Sarkozy as Napoleon Bonaparte in the famous painting by French Painter Jacques-Louis David, which was requested by a dear friend of mine from France. This one's for you Sylvia! I tried to find a French poodle in keeping with the French theme but couldn't find any good ones. I altered the painting just a bit as well as I did Sarkozy who made a great model. I had a lot of fun with the body and the puppy. I couldn't resist the puppy epaulettes. I hope he likes it. Sorry I couldn't do the First Lady Sylvia, she's just too pretty. I've posted the source images below.










Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day and be inspired!

  2. When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, it is the latter, not the government leaders who control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that receives. [...] The money has no motherland; financiers have no patriotism and lack of decency, their sole objective is winning. "Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821), French emperor

    Thank you my greatest Artfriend, our french President is very special....and your caricature could have been made by a french soul, it's sure he has his own vision as Napoléon had as all the men who think that they are superiors and forget the beauty of simplicity....


    The time of Charlemagne, they were obliged, under heavy penalties, to go to war for any notice whatsoever.
