Au temps des Merveilleuses - La société parisienne sous le Directoire et le Consulat
In the time of the Fine ladies - The Parisian society under the Directory and the Consulate
From march 9 to june 12 2005
The French Directory and the Consulate (1794-1804) were two regimes under which society changed immensely and gave place, following the fall of Robespierre, to Bonaparte's determination to dominate Europe. Thanks to 400 works -paintings, engravings, drawings, furniture, costumes and objets d'art -the historic context and the extravagance of that period are clearly shown.
