Intro
Napoleon Bonaparte reorganized the European world in many respects. 2019 marked the 250th anniversary of his birthday, an occasion that inspired Pforzheim’s Jewellery Museum to organize a special exhibition spotlighting the new kind of jewelry and fashion characteristic of the Napoleonic era.
Back then, the Neoclassical style of the Revolution and the decorative Empire style spread all over Western Europe well into Russia. The moral concepts developed during the Enlightenment called for an aesthetic inspired by reason, which met the taste of an increasingly powerful, self-confident, and educated middle class, and influenced all areas of culture – starting from architecture, painting, furniture, garments, and jewellery all the way through to literature and music. The visual arts were expected to stimulate the emergence of an intellectual aristocracy to break with the tradition of hereditary aristocracy.

Over the course of Napoleon’s imperial reign, the Empire style unfolded its representative splendor to perfection. Including several pieces created by Napoleon’s court jeweller Nitot, the exhibition catalogue presents numerous pictures showing how Napoleon presented himself respectively had himself depicted, and, alongside documents, as well as utilitarian and luxury items, gives an impression of his epoch.
