Come discover an array of the richest art in Kansas City when you visit Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art! Currently on display, Napoleon: Power and Splendor marks the first exploration of the majesty and the artistic, political and ideological significance of Napoleon’s imperial court from Napoleon’s self-appointment as First Consul in 1799 to his abdication in 1814.
The Imperial Household was a key institution during Napoleon’s reign. It was responsible for the daily lives of the Imperial family and the day-to-day existence of former general Bonaparte, who became Emperor Napoleon. The exhibition aims to re-create the ambiance and capture the spirit that prevailed in the French court during the Empire.
A selection of works, most of which have never before been exhibited in North America, will reveal the power and splendor of the Imperial Household and its role in fashioning a monarchic identity for the new emperor, his family and loyal entourage. Napoleon: Power and Splendor will be on display through March 10, 2019.
