Joséphine Bonaparte in the Louvre

12 June 2010

The Empress Joséphine by Pierre-Paul Prud’hon.

How ironic that nothing could have been more quintessentially Parisienne than the Mauritius born wife of Napoleon. I think that no other woman in history, with the exception of Coco Chanel, epitomises French style and chic more than she.
