This major exhibition aims to re-create the ambience and capture the spirit that prevailed in the French court during the First Empire. A selection of art works and objects, most of which have never before been exhibited in North America, will reveal the Imperial Household’s role in fashioning a monarchic identity for the new emperor who ruled France following the Revolution, as well as his family and loyal entourage.
Napoleon: Art and Court Life was organized and circulated by the MMFA, with the participation of Château de Fontainebleau and the exceptional support from the Mobilier national de France. It is currently on view at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City and will complete its tour at the Musée national du château de Fontainebleau.
