Napoleon @ The NGV
Last Saturday, Chrissy and I had the pleasure of attending the opening day of “NAPOLEON : REVOLUTION TO EMPIRE” at the National Gallery of Victoria. I have to say – I was very impressed. The exhibition takes visitors from the last days of Louis XVI, through the Revolution, Reign of Terror, Consulate, Empire and St Helena. I thought they did a great job encapsulating Napoleon’s life and career. There are some major works, one of his bicornes from St Helena, uniforms, copies of the Code Napoleon, and much, much more. I will be recording an interview with one of the Curators of the exhibition this week and will have it online soon. If any of you have the chance to attend the exhibition (it runs until Oct 7), I recommend it highly!
