"Napoleon's missing palaces" at the Galerie des Gobelins

LP Art has transported and crated numerous boxes to the second floor of the Galerie des Gobelins for the Mobilier National exhibition entitled "Napoleon's Missing Palaces" presented from September 15, 2021 to January 16, 2022 as part of the bicentenary of Napoleon's death.
This exhibition brings together numerous pieces of furniture and decorative elements from the main imperial palaces - the Tuileries, Saint-Cloud and Meudon - through which Napoleon Bonaparte wanted to promote the arts and crafts of the early nineteenth century: new types of furniture were created, metal arts flourished, and colors exploded on the walls of living rooms and the upholstery of seats.
With the help of digital reconstructions, she puts back into their original context the furniture, textiles and art objects that had been sheltered before these palaces burned down in 1870 and 1871 during the Franco-Prussian war and the Commune.
