The Eye of Napoleon Exhibit
The Frazier History Museum in Louisville is proud to present a new and magnificent exhibition, The Eye of Napoleon. Featuring more than 200 works of Napoleon Bonaparte’s paintings, sculpture, jewels, books, furniture and vintage clothing, The Eye of Napoleon is living proof the infamous and ruthless Emperor of France was a complex man. With royal palaces to furnish, and lavish gifts to amass for multiple wives, lovers and family members, Napoleon’s great taste was a powerful asset personally and politically.
The Eye of Napoleon, featuring the personal art collection of Napoleon Bonaparte, runs through February 9, 2014. It is both fitting and ironic that The Eye of Napoleon will be showcased in Louisville, the city named after King Louis XVI. It was his younger brother, King Louis XVIII, hardly a chip off the old block, who possessed enough ambition to begin unraveling Napoleon’s reign, both as a conqueror and a connoisseur.
