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.
