« Joséphine » at the Musée du Luxembourg, Paris.

Portrait of the Empress Josephine (1763-1814), dressed as Queen of Italy, Andrea Appiani of Aone (1754-1817), (C) RMN-Grand Palais (musÈe des chateaux de Malmaison et de Bois-PrÈau) / GÈrard Blot

On the occasion of the bicentenary of the death of the Empress Josephine, this exhibition renews the image of one of the women who most influenced the history of France.

Fully embedded in her time, she still embodies an extraordinary destiny in a society undergoing great change. Thanks to some exceptional loans, the exhibition evokes, in addition to her life, all areas in which Josephine has left her mark. Starting with the decorative arts, by showing off her luxurious furnishings and her table. Also fashion, through the elegance and richness of her clothes and jewelry. And the art of portraiture, through emblematic pieces of work such as the great portraits of her by Prud’hon and Gros.
Until June 29
