Exhibition at the Château de Fontainebleau, France, 18 March - 19 June 2017

Richly illustrated, this publication surveys the projects undertaken by French architect and interior designer Charles Percier (1764-1838). After gaining an illustrious reputation for supervising the scenery at the Paris Opéra during the French Revolution, Percier was later appointed by Napoleon Bonaparte. With the Emperor's support, he developed the opulent versions of neoclassicism now known as Directoire style and Empire style. Percier worked on the renovation or redecoration of many of France's royal palaces, including the Louvre, the Tuileries, and the chateaux of Malmaison, Saint-Cloud, and Fontainebleau. 
The full scope and variety of Percier's design projects are revealed in this book, which also includes archival material detailing his relationships with patrons and peers.
