The Napoleonic galleries redesigned
The arrangement of exhibits in the rooms inaugurated in 2009 is to be completely redesigned (a gallery will be devoted to Napoleon’s bivouac; new presentation of the Battle of Lodi maquette, etc.); in galleries recounting the history of the 19th century, a new space will be added dedicated to the Emperor’s exile; certain large paintings, notably the portraits of Count Daru (1767-1829), Minister of State by the painter Antoine-Jean Gros and of General Frère (1764-1826) by the painter Nicolas Gosse, are to be re-hung.
