Napoleon: Revolution to Empire
Brought to my attention by Carmi at 'My Napoleon Obsession' is the fact that the National Gallery of Victoria here in Melbourne will be hosting a spectacular exhibition of Napoleonic artifacts next year.
A description of the exhibition from Napoleon.org begins:
"Napoleon: Revolution to Empire" is a panoramic exhibition examining French art, culture and life from the 1770s to the 1820s. Its story runs from the first French voyages of discovery to Australia during the reign of Louis XV to the end of Napoleon's transforming leadership as first Emperor of France.
To read the whole exhibition description go to the NGV via the link here
The NGV is also the proud owner of 'The 28th Regiment at Quatre Bras' by Lady Butler which I am ashamed to say that I haven't yet seen, so I'll be able to kill two birds with one stone as it were!
