Napoleon’s Power in Miniature: Cameos in Napoleonic France
January 14, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
ASJH members were invited to a lecture by ASJH 2015 Scholarship winner Ana Estrades as she spoke on the variety of cameos owned by Napoleon and Josephine Bonaparte. She explored the personal and public, political and economic, aesthetic and historical uses of cameos to understand the personal tastes of the Bonapartes, aligning Napoleon with the greatest Roman Emperors and advancing the couple’s political ambitions.
