No ruler in the history of the world has been more aware of the capacity of symbolism to propagate power than Napoleon I; and to support his new vision he sponsored a program of arts that proclaimed France the New Rome. Superb photographs, many taken expressly for this volume, exhibit gorgeous objects decorated with a wealth of antique motifs-columns, arches, laurel wreathes, acanthus leaves, eagles, Egyptian hieroglyphs-created by master French furniture-makers, silversmiths, jewelers, and porcelain and textile manufacturers. Figures of Fame and Victory abound, and furniture, vases, porcelains, and even silverware display an antique style that projects the aura of imperial majesty. Condition: Neuf, Langue: Anglais
