  • The pose recalls that in Prud'hon's portrait of Josephine in the Wallace Collection (P315). Josephine is shown wearing with her dress a court collar called a 'chérusque', as she did at her coronation with Napoleon. This was inspired by the 'style troubadour' of painting, of which she was probably the most significant patron.
