There are approximately eight known examples of this model - all of which lifetime plaster cast - including those in: Château de la Malmaison, the Fine-Arts Museum, Lyon, the Museum of Art and History, Geneva, and three now lost: one previously in the Town Hall of Lyon, one commissioned in 1801 by General Duhesme, commander of the Lyon garrison, and one offered by Chinard to the Academy of Lyon, his hometown. Another example, formerly with the Parisian dealers Fabius Frères, was sold by Christie's New York, 13 April, 2016, lot 27.
The present bust is certainly one of the rare examples of this model still in private hands.
