More than 200 works of art—many of which have never before been exhibited in the United States—reveal the intricacies of Napoleon’s household and the role it played in the daily life of the emperor and his family. Major masterpieces of painting as well as sumptuous decorative arts from the Château de Fontainebleau, the Louvre, the Musée de l’Armée in Paris, and other collections are included in this international loan exhibition.
