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


Description:  
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.

This week’s book(s):

Description: We are delighted to announce this week the winners of this year's Fondation Napoléon History Prizes! Competition this year was very stiff, with a remarkable number of meticulously researched, lavishly produced, brilliantly argued works under consideration, but our Jury managed to whittle them down to just three. The 2014 First Empire Prize is awarded to Irène Delage and Chantal Prévot's Atlas de Paris au temps de Napoléon; the 2014 Second Empire Prize to Étienne Chilot's Un jardin pour Eugénie; and the Jury Prize to Andrew Roberts for his Napoleon the Great. The award ceremony will take place in the Hôtel de Charost, the British Ambassador's residence in France and former home of Napoleon I's sister, Pauline Borghese, on 9 December.
 
Our warmest congratulations to all our winners!
