Abstract:

Eleven letters to various correspondents including Jacques Hittorf, Courbin, Boutron, Picard, and Joseph Bonaparte. In a letter to Picard, the director of the Royal Academy of Music (Feb. 15, 1815), Isabey complains of his shabby treatment with regard to his designs for the Opera, rejecting any implication that his patriotism is in doubt. In a letter to Joseph Bonaparte (30 Germinal April 19-20, c. 1800), Isabey discusses some sketches for Madame Bonaparte. Writing to Boutron (n.d.), he refers to his decorations for a play or opera, in particular for a curtain representing a camp, and mentions his cold feelings towards Greek palaces, noting that this point of view is sacrilegious to architects.

Documents include accounts for Isabey's painting and decoration of the Theatre des Tuileries (March 9-29, 1810), and for his work on the Opera de Didon (Jan., 1812).
