. A French Artist Is Under Fire for Hanging a ‘Disrespectful’ Replica Skeleton of Napoleon’s Horse Over the Military Leader’s Tomb « JO LEE MAGAZINE

ART NET NEWS – As France commemorates the bicentenary of Napoleon’s death this month, members of the French establishment have lambasted the artist Pascal Convert for suspending a replica skeleton of Napoleon’s horse above the former emperor’s tomb in the dome of the Invalides in Paris. Critics say that the artwork, created for an exhibition about the military leader, is “disrespectful.” Titled Memento Marengo (2021), the sculpture is based on 3D scans of Napoleon’s favorite horse at the National Army Museum in London. Convert was commissioned to make the piece for a group exhibition at the Musée de l’Armée.
