Announcing a new Meetup for FRANCO LONG BEACH!

Napoleon is coming... to Muzeo is Anaheim.

Oh well we can't go to Paris and spend the morning at the Invalides. It is unfortunately too far from us. But let's take advantage of this fantastic exhibit which is coming to California, enjoy and learn about Napoleon and his era. And speak french...


Per the Muzeo's website:

"Overview
In this exhibition, the drama and splendor of an extraordinary period of time ?come alive? for visitors of all ages. The goal of this unique exhibition is multi-fold. First, it allows visitors the opportunity to see beyond the ?legend? of Napol?on Bonaparte to gain an understanding of this complex figure as a man. Second, it reveals how art and design played a key role in creating not only his Empire, but also his lasting place in history and in the public?s consciousness. Third, it provides a highly entertaining experience for the audience... allowing them to encounter the type of historic objects and art that can rarely be seen outside the halls of the great museums and palaces of Europe.

Highlights
> With few exceptions, every item in the exhibition belonged to Napol?on, his family or his Imperial Court.
> Approximately 5,000 square feet, but can easily be expanded.
> The exhibition includes more than 300 pieces.
> Showcased are paintings, sketches and sculptures by the greatest artists of the time including: Gros, David, Canova, Gerard, Isabey, Houdon, Percier, Fontaine, Delaroche, Claudet, Vernet, Mauzaisse, and more.
> Silver, porcelain, textures, furniture and jewelry on display come from the finest manufacturers of 1st Empire France.

The exhibition includes extraordinary artifacts that trace this seminal historic figure's life including:
> The earliest known letter in his hand.
> The valise that brought him the signed Louisiana Purchase documents form America.
> The sword that proclaimed him Emperor in the Coronation Ceremony at Notre Dame.
> His camp bed from the Battle of Wagram.
> His personal map of the Empire (1812).
> The clothes he wore prior to his death.
> One of his famous bicorn hats, which was worn during the Battle of Essling.
> 50 elegant, satin-lined cases for sculptures, objects and documents.
> 80 wall-hung artworks, this world class exhibition is unusually rich in art and artifacts.
> The collector, who served as curator for the project, enhances each venue's opening events and media opportunities by providing his services as a lecturer and availability for press interviews. "
