The Sisters of Napoleon: An Exhibition at Musée Marmottan Monet
14 August 2013
Art Exhibition in Paris
Come the 3rd of October 2013, The Sisters of Napoleon, an exhibition dedicated to the Bonaparte women, will be at the Musée Marmottan Monet. The collection seeks to offer an unprecedented glimpse into the Napoleonic Empire through the lives of its most prominent women. The sisters lived in splendour as wives, mothers and leaders, and through their eyes we can see a new perspective on the construction of Europe.
The Historic Musée Marmottan Monet Will Host the Exhibit For a Limited Time
Musée Marmottan Monet is a grand establishment located in the 16th arrondissement. The building, a former hunting lodge, has a rich history dating back to the 1800s and features an impressive collection of Impressionist art, along with work from Monet and Morisot. It will be exhibiting The Sisters of Napoleon until the 26th January 2014.
Sculptures, paintings, jewellery and more have been collected from descendants of the family to create the event. The selection will be impressive and a true testament to the beauty, charm, and wit of Napoleon's sisters. Pauline (1780-1825) was an imperial French Princess and the first sovereign Duchess of Guastally; she was the only sister to visit Napoleon during his exile. Caroline (1782-1839) was Grand Duchess Consort of Berg and became Queen Consort of Naples and Sicily following her marriage to General Joachim Murat. Elisa (1977-1820) was known for her sharp tongue and her interest in theatre, which she encouraged in all places over which she ruled. She was the Princess of Piombino and later, the Grand Duchess of Tuscany, and was Bonaparte's only sister to possess political influence.
