Tuesday, May 11, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Event Navigation

For our next “Les Mardis du Paris Chapter” series, join us for a conference via Zoom “Napoléon aux 1001 Visages” presented by Elisabeth Caude, Conservateur Général du Patrimoine, Directrice du Service à compétence nationale des musées nationaux des châteaux de Malmaison et de Bois-Préau, de l’île d’Aix et de la Maison Bonaparte à Ajaccio.
On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the death of Napoleon and the exhibition “1001 Faces of Napoleon” at the Château de Malmaison, Elisabeth Caude, specialist of the Napoleonic period, will allow us discover, through her enthusiasm and expertise, the evolution of his features over time.

If there is one easily recognizable silhouette, where a long frock coat topped with a large bicorn hat can be seen, it is that of Napoleon I. But behind these accessories, which are intimately linked in the collective memory to the personality of the Emperor, beyond these images so often reproduced, what were  Napoleon Bonaparte’s true features ? Is it the fiery young man with emaciated features victorious at the battle of Marengo, the hero resembling rulers of antiquity with classical features who emerged under Canova’s chisel? The reconstruction of Napoleon’s face from his death mask, which was part of a police investigation, reveals part of the mystery.The program will conclude with a question and answer session moderated by Jennifer Herlein, FHS Executive Director.
