To mark the two hundredth anniversary of the death of the Empress Josephine, the exhibition brings together personal mementos and major works from her prestigious art collections. From her Creole origins to her marriage to Napoleon Bonaparte, from her role as a sovereign to her life after divorce, visitors are invited to enter Josephine’s private world and discover a modern woman who was passionate about travel, music and gardens.
The exhibition is organised by the Réunion des musées nationaux — Grand Palais with the Musée national des Châteaux de Malmaison et Bois-Préau
