Subject: (urth) Napoleon Date: Tue, 15 Oct 2002 13:09:27 -0700 You know, the whole business about "why Napoleon kept his hand in his vest," according to _any_ biography, is a huge red herring ... he did not (as far as I can tell) habitually go about with his hand in his vest. There's this one portrait where he's posed that way; it happens to be the most famous of all his portraits. But if you tour, say, the Louvre, you'll see a number of other contemporary paintings, such as David's painting of Napoleon Crowning the Empress Josephine, in which his hands are in plain view. So ... what does this say about Den? --Blattid --
