London art dealers Robilant+Voena have reunited two portraits of Napoleon Bonaparte and Josephine for the first time in 200 years for a special exhibition at their Dover Street premises (finishes 27th June 2021). Both pictures were completed in 1796 by Italian artist Andrea Appiani to celebrate their marriage. The paintings were eventually split up during the course of the next century. To make this reunion possible, the portrait of Napoleon has been loaned by the Earl of Rosebery and joins the painting of Josephine which the dealers have been offering for sale.
