Brighton artist Ant Fox’s satirical take on the famous 19th century painting of Napoleon I at Fontainebleau by Paul Delaroche. The original depicts a crestfallen Napoleon a few days before abdication, capturing his realisation that glory has turned its back on him and that his fall is close. Hippo, a famously aggressive animal is a fitting twist for Napoleon, who was a despotic, self-loving ruler, famously quoting ‘In battle, morale is everything’.
