When I think of Napoleon Boneparte, three things come to mind, icecream (of the tricolour kind), the Phoenix song Napoleon Says ‘Right hand in a trench coat!’, and short men. I will definitely be heading to the National Gallery of Victoria for this year’s Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition, Napoleon: Revolution to Empire, if only to lessen my ignorance.
On 2 June 2012, the National Gallery of Victoria will open this year’s Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition, Napoleon: Revolution to Empire. Never before seen in Australia, this exhibition brings to life the legend one of history’s most extraordinary and complex figures.

(Music by Phoenix not included).
WHEN: Open daily from 10am–5pm from 2 June to 7 October 2012 and until 9pm every Wednesday
WHERE: National Gallery of Victoria, 180 St Kilda Road, Melbourne
