Susan Jaques discusses and signs “The Caesar of Paris”
January 13 @ 3:00 pmFree
In The Caesar of Paris, Susan Jaques reveals how Napoleon’s dueling fascination and rivalry informed his effort to turn Paris into “the new Rome”– Europe’s cultural capital–through architectural and artistic commissions around the city. His initiatives and his aggressive pursuit of antiquities and classical treasures from Italy gave Paris much of the classical beauty we know and adore today.
