Napoleon's Sisters. Three Italian destinies, exhibition
Les Sœurs de Napoléon. Trois destins italiens,
From Thursday, October 3 2013 to Sunday, January 26 2014
The Bonaparte sisters.
The Marmottan Monet Museum devotes an exceptional and unprecedented exhibition to Elisa, Pauline and Caroline… Napoleon's sisters, princesses and queens of Italy. Thanks to exceptional loans from major European museums and collections of the family's Italian and French descendants, 140 works recreate the prestigious world of the private and public lives of the Bonaparte sisters. Their three extraordinary destinies are presented for the first time describing their origins in consular Paris to their Italian kingdoms under the Empire.
Paintings, sculptures, furniture, accessories, jewellery
and court adornments evoke the extraordinary destinies of Elisa (1777-1820), Princess of Piombino and Lucca, then Grand Duchess of Tuscany, Pauline (1780-1825) married to the Roman Prince Camillo Borghese, and Caroline (1782-1839), married to General Joachim Murat, who together ruled Naples in unparalleled splendour.
