Virtuel exhibition> “Napoleon, Myth and propaganda”
Soon to be opened online
“Napoleon, Myth and Propaganda” is a virtual exhibition produced by UMA (Universal Museum of Art), with the participation of Thierry Lentz, director of the Fondation Napoléon.
In a virtual reality setting, inspired by the Napoleonic era, the exhibition retraces the emblematic works representing Napoleon. Throughout his life, artists accompanied his political rise, worked on the emergence of modern propaganda, and thus contributed to building his myth. The exhibition, which includes some forty works, all with commentary, will be accessible from your mobile and computer on the website www.the-uma.org.
