This uniform appears notably the paintings by Lejeune and David. As with the model set for generals as established on 7 August 1798, it is made of woolen cloth coloured blue the army colour. Only the buttons are reproductions, copied from period pieces. The hat shown here, made by the hatmaker Poupard, was not worn at Marengo but is identical to that shown in the paintings and engravings representing the battle.

This work is part of the exhibition Marengo. Une victoire politique, which lasts until 28 August 2000 at the Museum of the Châteaux de Malmaison et
Bois-Préau.
