Josephine & Napoleon, an (extra)ordinary story

19 May – 18 July 2021
More than 150 works will be on display, including historical and never-before-seen gems, a hundred or so paintings, works of art, letters and archival documents, as well as personal and rare objects related to this beautiful love story, the aim being to plunge visitors into the heart of the matter, power, symbolism, transmission, emotions… An (extra)ordinary story which transcends its own epoch and the Empire becoming legendary and immortal.
This exhibition has been made possible thanks to the support of international museums and private lenders.

An exhibition booklet, written by Pierre Branda, Head of the Heritage Department of the Fondation Napoléon, will be distributed free of charge during the visits.
