DELAGE Irène, From Bonaparte to Napoleon – 100 masterpieces


Description:  
Reading this book is like wandering through your own paper art gallery containing all of the greatest Napoleonic paintings.

And it's huge! Nearly a metre tall (70 cm) and weighing 12 kilos, it is certainly no shrinking violet. It's so heavy that it comes with its own lectern in solid oak. That being said, the reproductions are sumptuous in the extreme. Readers will marvel at these masterpieces reproduced in high definition - in fact they're almost better than the originals.
 
Each of the 100 reproductions of the most famous paintings of Napoleon Bonaparte's remarkable existence has its own accompanying commentary written by Irène Delage, Head of Documentation, Services to the Public and New Technologies at the Fondation Napoleon. The book is prefaced by Thierry Lentz, Director of the Fondation Napoléon.
  
From Bonaparte to Napoleon – 100 masterpieces - To be released on November 15, 2013.
 
Published in collaboration with the Fondation Napoléon.
