This oil painting is by Etienne Bouhot from 1813. Titled The Tuileries Gardens And Palace Seen From the Quai d'Orsay, it shows the imperial gardens and palace in the final years of Napoleon's days of power. The gardens are still around today, but the palace was destroyed during the days of the Paris Commune in 1871.
There were also items of Napoleon's time on display, such as fashion- including these slippers and fan, and the bed in the second shot.
The breastplate you see here is steel and engraved brass. It was Napoleon's ceremonial breastplate. The chest beneath it, open for display, was his campaign kit, which impressed me. It contains 110 items, neatly packed together, with personal grooming and dining items, as well as working tools. Napoleon had commissioned it from a goldsmith named Martin-Guillaume Biennais.
This painting from 1833 is by the artist Louis-Charles Auguste Couder. Napoleon I Viewing The Staircase Of The Louvre, Accompanied By Architects Percier And Fontaine shows the Emperor and the architects whose work on what was the Musee Napoleon and is today the Louvre amid the splendour of the building, which shows signs of being worked on.
The Church Of The Feuillants Being Demolished is a work by Hubert Robert dating back to around 1804, showing the dismantling of a church during the Revolutionary period- this church stood near the Tuileries.
