Not in Lugt. The description includes an extract from the "Advertisement to the Public from the Chamber of Commerce ..., August 1811". The 2.5-meter marble statue of Napoleon, sculpted in 1811 by Dominico Banti, was removed from Venice under the Austrian occupation in 1814 and went through sales and vicissitudes. Purchased (at Sotheby's, New York in 2002) by the Committee for the Preservation of Venice, it has recently been installed in the Museo Correr in St Mark's Square.
