Power and counter-power through the image. Napoleon is one of the first actors in the construction of his legend, very conscious of the role of the image. He inspired and surrounded himself with the greatest artists of his time giving rise to a rich official iconography. At the same time, hawkers spread widely in society the image of the man with the little black felt hat, gray frock coat and hand in the vest.
