New portrait of Napoleon as Emperor.  I want to do a series of portraits at different stages of his life, which has taken several references and attempts, but so far it’s coming along.

Special thanks to those that like and reblog my work and make comments- of which help keep me motivated to try art projects like this.

Having moved recently, I am trying to get back into the groove of doing art so hopefully you’ll see more of my work going up online soon.

The Emperor’s Venison Fricassee

Fricassees are normally made with chicken, but the Emperor (which one? Who knows!) has to have the best and most unusual cuisine served at his table, so why not some tender chunks of venison? This deliciously fragrant Breton-style stew is perfect for autumn and winter nights and is enough to feed your family and friends!

You will need:
1.5kg venison, chopped into generous chunks
¼ cup butter, softened
1 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
¼ cup heavy cream
2 egg yolks
2/3 cup white wine
5 fresh tarragon leaves, chopped finely
3 large portobello mushrooms, diced roughly
2 medium sized potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 carrot, diced
2 tbsp flour
2 sprigs fresh parsley
2 sprigs fresh thyme
1 bay leaf
Juice of ½ lemon
Crushed sea salt and black pepper, to taste
Olive oil

Season the venison well with salt and pepper. In a large pot, melt the butter and add a splash of olive oil, and reduce to medium-high heat.

Brown the venison, stirring every now and then to make sure all the pieces are evenly cooked. Fry until medium (brown on the outside but still pink on the inside) to keep it tender during the stewing process. Remove from the heat and transfer to a plate.

Reduce to medium heat and sautée the carrots, potatoes, and onion until tender and golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Add the mushrooms and flour to the pot, and stir well until the flour has been dissolved evenly. Pour in the wine and broth, and bring to a boil. Give it a good stir then add the venison and jus, and add the parsley, thyme, and bay leaf, tied together with string. Reduce to a simmer and cover partially, cooking for 30 minutes. Once again, remove the venison and transfer to a plate.

In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and cream, then pour into the pot slowly while stirring all the while to make sure it doesn’t congeal.

Put the venison back in, along with the lemon juice and tarragon. Stir all well into the sauce, simmer for another 2-3 minutes, then serve immediately.


The destroyed former Royal Palace of Tuileries that was begun under orders of French Queen Catherine de Medici, expanded and enlarged by every following monarch through Napoleon III. It was set ablaze under the 1871 Commune and laid in ruins for years before it was completely demolished.


🇫🇷 Empress Eugénie de Montijo (1826-1920) was the wife and consort to Napoleon III, the last Emperor of France. Eugénie was a great patron of the Art known for her intelligence, beauty & grace especially in the face of great personal tragedies such as the loss of her crown & throne as well as the deaths of her husband and only child.

Less known to history is her believe in the equality of women which she passionately pursued in their societal and administrative advancements as well as the opening up of educational institutions for girls and women.

Here we see her in near allegorical paintings but also in real life photographs which show the weight of her many ups and downs of her 94 years of life. ⚜

At first, Macron’s liberal boosters seemed to be getting what they bargained for. Macron stood up against Trump, publicly airing his disagreement with him for pulling the United States out of the Paris climate accord while saying, “Make our planet great again.” There was his pre-emptive white-knuckled handshake with Trump which demonstrated firmness.

But look closer, and a much more complicated picture of Macron’s politics emerges. To start, he won the presidency with a weak mandate in an election in which over a third of French voters abstained or cast white ballots. His party En Marche! won an overwhelming majority in parliament only amid record-low turnout. This weak mandate, coupled with his effort to push through controversial labor reforms without debate in parliament, does not sound deeply democratic.

Macron, who took Trump to Napoleon Bonaparte’s tomb, has himself earned comparisons to the French emperor, something he doesn’t entirely seem to mind: He has previously said that France needs a king and Jupiter-like president. Macron has also given other offensive and sometimes utterly bizarre commentary. When he was recently asked if Africa would implement a Marshall Plan for Africa, he described Africa’s economic problems as “civilizational.” After the president skipped the traditional Bastille Day news conference, an administration source explained that Macron’s “complex thought process” didn’t lend itself to interviews with journalists.

Macron has emphasized tax cuts for businesses and limits on public spending. When the new French Prime Minister Édouard Philippe spoke to FT and was told that these were right-wing measures, Phillippe allegedly burst into laughter and responded, “Yes, what did you expect?” Macron has made a concerted effort to lure capital to France, particularly bankers leery of Brexit. When Macron speaks of revolutionizing and transforming France, in sounds more like a Silicon Valley-style neoliberalization than pro-worker reform that might benefit the poor and working class. Americans, at the very least, should know that this has not been to solution to the plight of workers.

September 4th 1870: Napoleon III deposed

On this day in 1870 French Emperor Napoleon III, nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte, was deposed. Before assuming the imperial title in 1852 he was the first President of France, having been elected by popular vote. However when prevented from running for a second term he staged a coup d’état and seized the throne. Napoleon’s initial reign was characterised by repression of political enemies and wide-ranging reform of French life, including some positive changes like extensive rebuilding of Paris, financial reorganisation and some labour rights. He was eventually overthrown due to his poor leadership in the Franco-Prussian War, which resulted in decisive Prussian victory under the leadership of Otto von Bismarck. The Emperor was even captured by the Prussians himself at the Battle of Sedan and after this surrendered to the Prussians in what many French saw as a humiliating debasement. Soon after that debacle he was removed from power and was held in captivity before going into exile in Britain. The Third Republic was declared and the monarchy abolished, thus making Napoleon III the last French monarch.
