Abstract:

"Charles Percier and Pierre Fontaine were the official government architects of Napoleon, as well as two of the most celebrated teachers at the legendary Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and were responsible for developing the highly influential neoclassical Empire, or Directoire, style of design. Their designs and renovations can be seen throughout the monuments and structures of Napoleonic France, including extensive renovations to the Louvre and Tuileries palaces, construction of the Arc de Triomphe de Carrousel, as well as their true masterpiece, the Empress Josephine's Chateau de Malmaison, where they designed every interior detail, helping invent and shape the modern field of interior design. This will be the definitive edition on the work of Percier and Fontaine, bringing together their four most influential volumes on architecture and interior design, comprising detailed studies of the most important classical and neoclassical architecture across Europe, as well as their own designs, and featuring an introduction by esteemed architecture critic and historian Barry Bergdoll"--
