Minor loss

Condition report:
The painting is under a slightly uneven varnish. The laying down on canvas was done long ago and not fully planed. We note a small loss on lower right part.

History:
Specialized in dioramas, Bouton evoked here the Geranium Valley (called afterwards “tomb valley”) where Emperor Napoleon I was buried on May 9, 1821. A star seems to indicate to visitors the place where the illustrious person rests.
