📖 This month's book | In A life in gardens and shadows, Ruth Scurr invites the reader to look at the trajectory of Napoleon’s extraordinary life from unfamiliar perspectives. By narrowing her focus to the many gardens that she argues were more than just a decorative backdrop for key moments of Napoleon’s life – his garden at Brienne, the Jardin des Plantes, the Tuileries, Malmaison, Hougoumont, the garden at Longwood… - she finds space for the small details that have been overlooked in the more conventional narratives of Napoleon’s epic life.

🖼 Exhibition | From 1 May to 22 August 2021, the Panorama Museum "Battle of Borodino" in Moscow will host an exhibition to mark the 200th anniversary of Napoleon's death on the island of St Helena, featuring pieces from the Panorama Museum's collection and from that of Alexander Vikhrov on the theme of Napoleon's image, from Romanticism to politics, over the last two centuries.

On May 5, 1821, Napoleon Bonaparte died in exile on the island of St Helena. By sending the former Emperor of France into exile, the European monarchs had every reason to hope that this adventurer and upstart would soon be forgotten. But he managed to remind himself. Over the last five and a half ye...

That being said, it would indeed have been frustrating and inexplicable for it to have been otherwise." 👉 Read more of "A national tribute? Check!

Press communiqué | The Fondation Napoléon regrets the refusal of the Paris Musée de l'Armée to move elsewhere the planned artistic installation of a reproduction of the skeleton of the horse, “Marengo”, above the Emperor's Tomb.

As part of its contemporary art exhibition "Napoleon? Encore!", which opens on 7 May 2021, the Musée de l'Armée has commissioned several works from renowned artists. One of them is an installation above the Emperor's Tomb of a reproduction in composite material of the skeleton of the horse called “Marengo”, the original of which is kept in the National Army Museum in London.
Whilst it is normal for the Museum to be open to contemporary art, the choice of location for this installation, in the heart of the necropolis of France's military glories, and moreover at a time when the bicentenary of the death of Napoleon I is being commemorated, does not seem appropriate. The Fondation Napoléon asked the director of the Musée de l'Armée to move the work to another location.
This request was not taken into consideration, and the Fondation can only regret this refusal.

⌛ 200 years ago | #OTD On Sunday 6 May 1821, after the autopsy which was conducted in the afternoon by the anatomist Dr Antommarchi, Napoleon’s body was dressed in his favourite chasseur colonel uniform and hat and displayed to the public in a make-shift "Chapel of rest" on one of his campbeds in his study at Longwood.
There, John Ward, a young ensign of the 66th Regiment made a detailed drawing of this unusual "lying-in-state". This copy made and signed by the artist has since been donated to the Longwood Museum on St Helena by Jean-Paul Mayeux.
