DAVID Jacques-Louis (1748-1825).
L.A.S. "David", Tuesday at 9 o'clock, 8 December 1807, to the Marquis de BAUSSET, chamberlain to the Empress; 1 page in4, address (crossed out). About the painting of the Coronation of Napoleon, for which Bausset must pose. He expects it "this morning for eleven o'clock, it is necessary to remove that rather, because the public which starts to be carried in crowd would prevent us from working if we delay longer. Do not forget to bring your chamberlain's habit: you will come to the workshop in negligee, dressed however, unless you prefer to come dressed as if you were going somewhere else afterwards. As for the flattering things you have had the goodness to say to me, I would like to be able to give it, this immortality, I swear, I will only give it to good people who look like you"...
