A French Affair: Time with Napoleon

Several weeks back, I stopped in at the National Gallery of Art and saw one of Jacques-Louis David’s most famous paintings, The Emperor Napoleon in His Study at The Tuileries. While taking in this massive and majestic work, I remembered that Virginia Museum of Fine Art would be unveiling a Napoleon exhibit during the month of June.

I went to the members preview on Saturday, June 9th, and this exhibit didn’t disappoint. The word “luxurious” is the most apt way to describe the exhibit. I will be returning again, before the exhibit leaves, so that I can (hopefully) get pictures that I can share on this platform.
