The Consulate, 1799-1804 : Intellectual Life

Napoleon Bonaparte, young, energetic, charismatic, made a strong impression on many people of his time. JACQUES-LOUIS DAVID, in Napoleon crossing St. Bernard (the Alps, 1800/01) tried to ban these characteristic on canvas. Napoleon's bust figured on medals issued on the occasion of military accomplishments or newly created institutions.
In 1802, parallel with the reestablishment of religion (the CONCORDAT), Napoleon reestablished PUBLIC EDUCATION.
