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.

This panoramic exhibition features nearly 300 works, examining French art, culture and life from the 1770s to the 1820s and includes objects of breathtaking opulence and luxury – from paintings, drawings, engravings, sculpture, furniture, militaria, textiles, porcelain, gold and silver, fashion and jewellery. (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
WEB: ngv.vic.gov.au/napoleon (Adult tickets $26, Concession tickets $22.50)
