NAPOLEON: IMAGES OF THE LEGEND

Showcasing paintings, sculptures and furniture from Versailles’s extensive collection the exhibition Napoleon: Images of the Legend at the Musée des Beaux-Arts of Arras lifts the veil on the emperor’s reign. The exhibition presents a large selection of the Napoleonic collection from the palaces of Versailles and Trianon, which is the world’s largest on the subject. Visitors will be able to discover the history of Napoleon in chronological order, from General Bonaparte to the fallen Emperor, as well as learn about Napoleon’s entourage, family, and the imperial court.

Until November 4, 2018
