Exhibition: The emperor’s house. To serve and magnify Napoleon the first

From Avril 13th to July 15th I Château de Fontainebleau

On March 18, 1804, Napoleon Bonaparte, First Consul, was proclaimed „Emperor of the French“. Throughout his reign, the emperor surrounded himself with a splendid „House“, a sort of close entourage, worthy of his imperial title. Dedicated officers and faithful servants organized the daily public and private life of Napoleon I and contributed to the widespread influence of the regime. Portraits, ceremonial clothes and sumptuous works of art represent a new angle to rediscover the Napoleonic adventure.

The first part of the exhibition, held in the room of the Belle Cheminée, will allow the visitor to relive the splendor of the imperial palaces and the court. The second part presents the six Grand Civil Officers of the Crown: the Grand Marshal of the Palace, the Grand Chaplain, the Grand Master of Ceremonies, the Grand Chamberlain, the Grand Equerry and the Grand Veneur. It also evokes the main figures surrounding the imperial family. The third part presents a selection of masterpieces from the imperial manufacture of Sèvres, diplomatic and new years gifts offered by the Emperor to his loyal servants.

This exceptional ensemble of almost 100 works of art resonates with the Napoleon I Museum and allows a new approach of the visit of the palace, this privileged witness of court life under the First Empire.
