National Gallery of Victoria Does Napoleon!


The NGV in Melbourne (my old hometown) is running”>a major Napoleon exhibition in Melbourne starting June 2012. Amazingly, neither David nor I have been invited to participate! I am going to reach out to the curator though and try to get an interview with them about the exhibition.

Napoleon: Revolution to Empire is a panoramic exhibition examining French art, culture and life from the 1770s to the 1820s. Its story runs from the first French voyages of discovery to Australia during the reign of Louis XV to the end of Napoleon’s transforming leadership as first Emperor of France. Exhibition organised with Fondation Napoléon, Paris. Co-curator: Karine Huguenaud, Chargée des Collections, Fondation Napoléon

  1. I am really excited that this exhibition is coming to Australia and will be making the trip east to see it. I purchased a copy of the book of this exhibition, or at least much of it, from when it was at the Stewart Museum in Montreal in 1999. There were some fabulous exhibits, covering the range from military, civil, imperial and social aspects of this amazing period of history. Can’t wait.
