“The original of this painting depicting the coronation of Napoleon and Josephine, was bought in 1898 by Paris Singer to form the centrepiece of the grand staircase design at Oldway Mansion in Paignton, Devon. The painting was sold in 1946 and hangs in the Palace of Versailles. Oldway Mansion now serves as offices for Torbay Borough Council and in the process of restoring the staircase the Council commissioned a copy of the painting. We printed the copy from a transparency at high definition onto Vinyl Coated Polyester.”
