Napoleon Amongst the Shopkeepers

Tuesday, 7th March, 2017 - 2:15pm

The Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle, DL12 8NP

Join Dr. Simon Lee, Associate Professor of the History of Art at the University of Reading, for a look at the English reception of the painter Jacques-Louis David, especially his 1815 exhibition in London, which was open at the same time as Napoleon began his Hundred Days campaign, which ended in his defeat at Waterloo. This talk also explores the process of identifying David’s portrait of Napoleon from 1814, which was unrecognized for many decades. Free with admission
