An exhibition in Saint-Pol-sur-Ternosie (near Arras in the north of France) celebrates one of its illustrious sons, Baron Louis Albert Guillain Bacler d’Albe, Napoleon Bonaparte’s brigadier general but also a painter and lithographer. A selection of graphic works presented at the Musée Danvin (until 1 July) reveals an unknown aspect of Bonaparte’s personal topographer.

French title: “Bacler d’Albe, artiste saint-polois, cartographe impérial”

The exhibition brings together for the first time a collection of lithographs, works and original drawings illustrating an abundant production.
