Since the article on our house was published in House & Home magazine I have had a lot of people ask me about the painting in our dining room. I'm not surprised, it is a stunner. This work is from a series of paintings Tony Scherman did on Napolean. I've lived with this painting for about a year now and I see new things in it everyday. If you look closely, perhaps you can make out the close-up profile of Napolean's face in the top right hand corner. A glimpse of an eye and a cheekbone. Object number thirty-six.
