Napoleon's Legacy: The Rise of National Museums in Europe 1794-1830

Napoleon's Legacy: The Rise of National Museums in Europe 1794-1830

Herausgeber: Ellinoor Bergvelt, Debora J. Meijers, Lieske Tibbe and Elsa van Wezel
Reihe: Berliner Schriften zur Museumsforschung #27

The French Revolution and the subsequent Napoleonic Wars had a major impact on European museums. From 1794 to 1813 enormous quantities of artworks, natural specimens, scientific objects, books and manuscripts from collections in the conquered areas in Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Austria and Spain were transported to Paris by the French armies. During a relatively short period of 15 years the general public had the opportunity to admire an overview of what, for the first time in history, might be called >European heritage<, exhibited in the Louvre and the Musée d’histoire naturelle. This anthology focuses on this enormous shift in the European >museum landscape<.
