"Majestic"

12 x 12"

This is one of the pieces that will be in my February show at the Cohen-Rese Gallery. The scene was taken from my visit to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston - the young men on the floor were part of a school field trip that day, the assignment was to write about their favorite piece of art and the two chose this mammoth painting. I'm trying to find the title and artist of this particular painting - if there's anyone out there who can tell me this, I'd be grateful. I thought it was Napoleon, but I think the man was much shorter.

Thank you Adam - you helped me identify the painting in question. Read Adam's comment for the title and artist.

Hi Karen,

That painting is
"Charles Stewart, Sixth Marquess of Londonderry, Carrying the Great Sword of State at the Coronation of King Edward VII, August, 1902, and Mr. W. C. Beaumont, His Page on That Occasion"

by John Singer Sargent.

Thank you Adam. I could just kick myself for not recognizing it as a Sargent painting. Thank you again.
