The revelation comes from an article by Joshua Green adapted from his upcoming book Devil’s Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the Presidency. 

The article describes Bannon's recent resurgence since reports in April said he had fallen out of President Trump's favor. While listing the qualities that drew Bannon and Trump together after their first meeting in 2010 Green says Bannon, like Trump, "had a healthy self-regard."

"On his office wall hung an oil painting of Bannon dressed as Napoleon in his study at the Tuileries, done in the style of Jacques-Louis David’s famous neoclassical painting," Green reported.

The report did not mention the current location of the painting. Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold challenged Twitter users to contact him with any information on its current whereabouts.

"Darkness is good," Bannon told the Hollywood Reporter in November. "Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That's power."
