Mirror, mirror on the wall…

Contemporary and historic images of political power

04 October 2008 to 04 January 2009

By examining contemporary images of political power and political communication, the exhibition invites the visitor to discover the original elements of the representation of political power in France. Since the grand models used in the time of Louis XIV, how have men of power been depicted, with the places and objects which symbolise them? Did the Revolution and the Republic create new styles or simply re-use the formulae of the monarchy?...
