Napoléon

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - CLASSIFIEDS -

This ex­hi­bi­tion tells a story that explores the 50-year pe­riod of Napoléon Bon­a­parte’s leg­endary life, in which he as a teenager from Cor­sica was even­tu­ally crowned Em­peror in France and fi­nally ex­iled to Saint He­lena. In this time he had love af­fairs with his two wives – Joséphine de Beauhar­nais and Maria Luise von Öster­re­ich. The story is nar­rated with strongly con­trast­ing con­tem­po­rary art­works and gives a com­pre­hen­sive and re­al­is­tic pre­sen­ta­tion of Napoléon’s rich, ex­cit­ing life ex­pe­ri­ence. The ex­hi­bi­tion in­cludes 185 re­lated an­tiques such as paint­ings and sculp­tures cre­ated for Napoléon, his manuscripts and writ­ings, clothes, pre­cious or­na­ments, fur­ni­ture and daily or mil­i­tary ne­ces­si­ties. This spe­cial ex­hi­bi­tion is cocu­rated by Shen Qibin, Board Chair­man of Shang­hai Hi­malayas Mu­seum, and Dr Bernard Che­val­lier, the global Napoléon ex­pert who once served as the cu­ra­tor of Château de Fon­tainebleau. This ad is based on a story from the of­fi­cial WeChat ac­count of Shang­hai Hi­malayas Mu­seum.
