Subseries D. "The Second Empire: Art in France under Napoleon III." Oct. 1-Nov. 26, 1978


Scope and Content Note

Joseph J. Rishel and Kathryn Bloom Hiesinger co-curated this exhibition in cooperation with the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Galeries Nationales du Grand Palais in Paris, France. The Museum brought together a variety of works created in France during the Second Empire, including paintings, scultpure, architectural elements, and decorative arts for the largest exhibition that had yet been organized. Administrative files, catalogue materials, loan documentation, and artist and subject files are included in the subseries. Because the department of European Decorative Arts after 1700 also participated in planning the exhibition, related records may be found in that record group as well.
