Emperor in His PJs is an amusing and thought-provoking piece of art that is sure to make a statement in any room. This self-mocking portrait by Jacques Lewis-David references the iconic portraits of Emperor Napoleon, but with a modern twist. The emperor is depicted sitting on a throne, wearing red velvet pajamas and holding a broken religious sceptre and grass pole. The bare feet and necklace with the coded message "FCK H8" add a touch of rebellion and impropriety to this otherwise regal portrait. This is a must-have piece for any art collector with a sense of humor.
