"Napoleon's missing palaces" at the Galerie des Gobelins

11 Oct 2021 Lp Art Exibitions

LP Art transported and encrated numerous boxes to the first floor of the Galerie des Gobelins for an exhibit of mobilier national entitled "Palaces Disparus de Napoléon" (The Disappeared Palaces of Napoleon) present from September 15, 2021 to January 16, 2022 as part of the bicentenary celebration of Napoleon's death.
This exhibition brings together many pieces of furniture and decorative elements from the main imperial palaces - the Tuileries, Saint-Cloud and Meudon - through which Napoleon Bonaparte wanted to promote the craftsmanship of the early nineteenth century: new types of furniture were exposed, the metal arts are flourishing, the colors explode on the walls of the living rooms and with extravagant upholstery seats.
With the help of digital renditions, these furniture, textiles and artworks that have been sheltered in these palaces were restored within its context before it got burnt down in 1870 and 1871 during the Commune and Franco-German war.
