“Resolution number one: Obviously will lose twenty pounds. Number two: Always put last night’s panties in the laundry basket. Equally important, will find nice, sensible boyfriend to go out with and not continue to form romantic attachments to any of the following: alcoholics, workaholics, commitment phobics, peeping toms, megalomaniacs, emotional fuckwits or perverts.”

Bonaparte as First Consul (sic).
© The Print Collector / Heritage-Images
The denomination First Consul seems anachronical here, since the inspiration in Corbet’s bust of the young general Bonaparte (below, 1797) seems evident. However, one of the most known copies of the bust (the original was lost), the one from Malmaison, does bear the inscription Le géneral Bonaparte, premier Consul de la République, par C.L. Corbet en l’an VII.
