Napoleon's two paintings depict two different faces of his personality. The painting by David shows Napoleon imposing, victorious on his horse, exuding confidence and prosperity. This painting shows Napoleon's face that was unbeatable in his victories and had the strength and elegance of a great leader.
On the other hand, Delaroche's painting shows a downcast and poor-looking Napoleon, because Delaroche wanted to show that even with so many victories, Napoleon was a human being like anyone else, with pain, tiredness and sadness.
Napoleon's two paintings depicting this moment were made by Jacques-Louis David and Paul Delaroche. The two paintings, while depicting the same moment when Napoleon is crossing the Alps, have different meanings and provoke different sensations in the viewer.
David's painting depicts Napoleon extremely admirable, he looks strong, happy and unbeatable on his horse. The painting gives a sense of achievement as Napoleon seems victorious, haughty and a great leader. On the other hand, Delaroche's Painting presents Napoleon in a more humble way, with a tired appearance and without much cheer. With so many victorious and defeated battles, Napoleon was an ordinary human being who feels tired and discouraged at times.
