MACAU ARTS MUSEUM (MAM), Exhibition Catalogue: Napoleon and the Decorative Arts: Treasures of the Imperial Palaces

The Mobilier National and the Gobelins, Beauvais and Savonnerie Manufactories amassed an outstanding collection of French furniture masterpieces during the reign of Napoleon I.
From April to July 2013, 125 pieces of imperial furniture from that period - including Napoleon's Imperial throne, which has been preserved in the French Senate in France - were being displayed together outside of France for the first time, at the Macao Museum of Art, in the exhibition “Napoleon and the Decorative Arts: Treasure of the Imperial Palaces”.
The variety of objects (furniture, tapestries, candelabras, chandeliers, and pendulum clocks, amongst other treasures) illustrated how Napoleon imposed his aesthetic sensibilities upon many aspects of life during this period and how the Empire-style has become one of the grandest and most opulent in the history of Fine and Decorative Arts.
This catalogue, and the quality of its photos, beautifully presents what was a unique exhibition.
