From 22 November 2023 to 26 February 2024, the Musée National des Châteaux de Malmaison & Bois-Préau will be presenting an exhibition entitled Un Panoramique Napoleonien: Les Campagnes des Français en Italie at the Château de Bois-Préau.
The museum owns a complete copy of the re-edition of a landscape wallpaper designed by the Dufour & Leroy factory around 1829 and restored for the occasion. It depicts - in a subdued style - five episodes relating to the victorious deployment of the French army against the Austrians in northern Italy in 1796, then against the English in Rome and Naples in 1798-99. Documents, objects, paintings, drawings and engravings will complement and develop these sequences, evoked with charm and a certain whimsy on the wallpaper, around this spectacular 16-metre long "wall hanging in monochrome", which will be presented in five parts.
