His portrait (after Antoine-Jean Gros) is heading for Wolumla near Bega in New South Wales.
Here's the background in an email from Fiona Stafford:
Our Alliance Francaise de la cote de saphire!! are having our annual Bastille dinner, it is the big night on our calendar. I am on the sub committee.
Our theme this year is Personage de France, so everybody comes looking like Napoleon or if your really ugly Charles de Gaulle.
Anyway, (I'm getting to it). What do you think of this idea? Would it be possible for you to donate a painting for the prize?
The alliance would frame it and of course it would be publicity for your gite etc. We would have it displayed with all your advertising blurb accompanying it.
You can say no, I haven't discussed it in commitee yet!
