How does Jacques-Louis David portray Napoleon in the painting Napoleon Crossing the Alps? Why do you think Napoleon wanted artists to produce portraits like this one?
A: David portrays Napoleon as being calm and mounted on a fiery steed. I think Napoleon wanted artists to produce portraits like this one because the painting was a representation of his character rather than his physical appearance.
