The unfinished portrait of General Bonaparte (also titled Le Général Bonaparte) is an unfinished portrait of Napoleon Bonaparte by Jacques-Louis David. He began it in 1798, painting its subject from life, and it was to represent Bonaparte at the Battle of Rivoli, holding the Treaty of Campo Formio in his hand, but it was never completed. Vivant Denon cut down the canvas to preserve only the painted part of the face and bust. It is on display at the Louvre.
